Cherie Peters is studying her PhD in social mobility in early medieval Irish peasants. Her PhD is based on the eleventh century and focuses mainly on the hinterland of Dublin.

This talk was part of Tales of Medieval Dublin: A series of monthly lunchtime lectures which took place during 2011 at the Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Wood Quay. The series was presented by the Friends of Medieval Dublin and Dublin City Council.
