About the Authors
  • Bruce Campbell's book is the first single-authored treatment of medieval English agriculture on a national scale. Methodologically innovative, it deals comprehensively with the cultivation carried out by or for lords on their demesne farms, for which the documentation is more detailed and abundant than for any other agricultural group either during the medieval period or later. A context is thereby assured for all future scholarship on the medieval and early agrarian economies. The book also makes a substantive contribution to ongoing historical debates.

    • First single-authored treatment of medieval English agriculture and, as such, will provide a context for scholarship in the future
    • Study is the result of extensive original research and methodologically very innovative
    • Given the density and richness of the subject-matter and material available, this is a beautifully written and accessible text
