Episode 2: What care we for these barefooted rascals? - medieval colonization and race lawHistory: darkness and light
03/04/21 • 52 min
This episode uses a 1327 petition to the English king from Welshman Adda ap Einion and his English wife Agnes as a jumping-off point to tell the story of the system of anti-Welsh race law that was created when England colonized Wales. This system of legal discrimination would last 469 years, from 1067 until its abolition by Henry VIII in 1536.
For more on this topic, see the recent article by Teresa Phipps and Matthew Stevens, ‘ Towards a characterization of Race law in Medieval Wales’, The Journal of Legal History, number 41 (2020).
