Cogadh Gaedhel re Gallaibh ('The War of the Gaedhil with the Gaill') is a medieval Irish narrative which contains information on the Viking age in Ireland. Social-network data are embedded in the texts. The source of these data is an edition/translation into English by James Henthorn Todd [Todd JH (ed. and trans.) 1867 Cogadh Gaedhel re Gallaibh. The war of the Gaedhil with the Gaill, or, the invasions of Ireland by the Danes and other Norsemen. London, UK: Longmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer]. Data are identified by carefully and manually reading Todd's texts with multiple passes through all of the material by multiple readers.
The data resource contains a Dataset of 315 characters and their nationalities extracted from the Cogadh Gaedhel re Gallaibh, a full Graph network of unsigned edges (315 vertices, 1190 edges), a positive (friendly) Graph network (287 vertices, 957 edges), and a negative (hostile) Graph network (180 vertices, 264 edges).

Some helper functions:
Create network Graph objects for the full cast, Irish, and Viking networks.
A useful graph embedding function:
We use a normalized betweenness centrality
We are interested in the closeness centrality of a node only if it is a member of the giant component.
Stability of the giant component
