    From its beginnings as a Viking trading settlement in the middle of the 10th century through to when the Normans arrived in the late 12th century, Dublin has always been a very important city.

    The shortest crossing to a major port in Britain, the city had the best communications between the English crown and its new lordship in Ireland in the early days and the city has always remained extremely important in Irish history.

    Written by historian Richard Killeen, the Historical Atlas of Dublin traces all the city's important moments right from Medieval times through to the Industrial Revolution and the excitement of the 1960s and 1990s as the city reinvented and revitalised itself.
