Angus MacKay was the foremost British historian of late medieval Castile, a period even neglected in Spain when he first worked on it in his doctoral thesis. In the University of Edinburgh in the 1970s and 1980s he produced a remarkable body of books and articles focusing on social and economic topics, and above all on the complexities of frontier relations between Castile and the Nasrid kingdom of Granada. He also collaborated frequently with other scholars and his own numerous research students in what remains ground-breaking research and publication.
