Bride Ales and Penny Weddings

Recreations, Reciprocity, and Regions in Britain from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Centuries

R. A. Houston

  • Addresses England, Scotland, and Wales equally instead of taking an English-centric approach
  • Covers a substantial time period, so of interest to historians across a broad date range
  • Presents challenging interpretations of social and cultural change
  • Looks at region and locality in British history - topical for modern debates on regional devolution and local/national identity
