This new paperback edition of Ciarán J. Devlin's The Making of Medieval Derry features an extensive range of indexes, prepared by Nollaig Ó Muraíle, that did not feature in the hardback edition. The two most important are of personal names and surnames, and of names of places and population-groups. It is a book that is a tale of saints and sinners, of churchmen and warlords, of scholars and craftsmen, of Derry itself as sacred city, as frontier citadel, as royal capital and episcopal see.
