    In the 1960s, an animated debate took place around the subject of St Patrick s death One party believed it occurred in 463 and the other in 493 This book clarifies the positions and, by several different approaches, shows conclusively that Patrick died in 493 This is done exclusively by Professor Dumville In addition, there are several peripheral chapters concerning the culture and geography of Patrick s Britain by other authors.
