A short examination of the historical framework from the period of the Norman Conquest to the end of the fifteenth century. A well written study, worth recording.

"The period from the Norman Conquest to the end of the fifteenth century may be conveniently and aptly labelled "Mediæval". Rich and varied as were the phases of its life, it has a certain homogeneity which marks it clearly off from the days before the Conquest and from the Tudor period."
