Between 1500 and 1800 the development of England and Ireland became closely intertwined, and the urban systems of both countries underwent changes of great long-term significance. This volume brings together historians and geographers from both Britain and Ireland to examine the common themes affecting provincial towns. The individual papers study economic growth, religious and cultural change, regionalization, landscape and planning, and the fate of different types of settlements (e.g. small towns, fair and market centres, county towns and regional capitals). A substantial introduction reviews the historiographical context of the subject, and discusses whether the trajectories of English and Irish urban development converged or diverged during the period.
