He traveled to France and pledged his loyalty to King Henry II as his lord. In early medieval Europe, national boundaries were much more fluid; it was far from unusual to call for foreign aid.

The early medieval period was seen as an extension of English archaeology (but see Kenyon and O’Conor 2003; O’Keefe 2000, 2004; Sweetman 2000 for examples of works focusing on the Irish archaeology of this period).
