A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1989-10:
This volume could easily have been two. A collection of ten exhaustive (and sometimes exhausting) articles by recognized authorities on medieval British agrarian history, the work ranges through most of the important subjects of present interest in the field, notably slighting only social history, which is discussed too briefly. The emphasis is on economic history, narrowly defined. Sometimes readers are told more than one really needs to know, such as head counts of livestock. Each major topical section--Domesday England, new settlement, farming and drainage techniques, population movements, social structure, wages and prices, peasant life, rural building, Wales, rural England and Wales--is intelligently subdivided. There is no general bibliography, but the references in each article guide the reader to the conclusions of current research. Upper-division undergraduates and above. -J. W. Alexander, University of Georgia

Description for Library
This volume deals with the agrarian history of England and Wales from the beginning of the reign of Edward the Confessor to the outbreak of the Black Death in 1348.

There are also sections on the Late Saxon period, Domesday England, wages and prices, vernacular architecture, and the life of the people.

The volume as a whole offers a detailed description of trends, both economic and social, between 1042 and 1350 and of the complexities of an economy and society split into many and various sub-economies and sub-societies, all very different from one another but closely knit and interdependent.
