Nora Chadwick, Celtic Britain

According to modern standards, “Celtic Britain” (1963) is actually a bit of a misnomer: the book by Nora K. Chadwick (1891‑1972) is not -as many would expect- about pre-Roman Britain, but about the period after the Fall of the Roman Empire, in which the kingdoms of Wales and Scotland came into existence, and church life was dominated by the conflict between the Roman Catholic Church and the Celtic Church.
