BRIEF HISTORY OF LIFE IN THE MIDDLE AGES

MARTYN WHITTOCK    Book Number: 82885    Product format: Paperback

From the ever-popular Constable & Robinson series, this is the 2017 reprint of a fascinating new social history of medieval England. Between the 10th century and the Wars of the Roses in the mid 15th century, England was transformed, moving from the Dark Age of Saxon kings to the birth of the modern nation. The consolidation of the crown and the feudal system reshaped the landscape and saw the emergence of towns and trading cities. A conversation between a ploughman and his master allows author Whittock to explore 11th century rural society. An account of Dick Whittington illuminates the rise of the urban élite, while stories of Roger 'The Raker' who drowned in sewage, the treatment of a 'merman' imprisoned in Orford Castle, and the sufferings of the Jews of Bristol reveal the diversity of Medieval society. A dynamic panorama of medieval England entertainingly revealed in 320 page paperback.
