Description
Between the 10th century and the Wars of the Roses in the mid-15th, England moved from the age of Saxon kings to the birth of the modern nation, while the consolidation of the crown and the feudal system led to the emergence of towns and trading cities. Using a wide variety of firsthand accounts and anecdotes, Martyn Whittock shines new light on this extraordinary era. A conversation between a ploughman and his master allows Whittock to explore 11th-century rural society, and an account of Dick Whittington illuminates the rise of the urban elite, while stories of Roger "the Raker" who drowned in sewage, the treatment of a "merman" imprisoned in Orford Castle, and the sufferings of Jews in Bristol reveal the diversity of medieval society.
