Details

Part of an eight-volume series providing short biographies of men and women from Roman to Victorian times, Who's Who in Late Medieval England spans the period 1272-1485. Covering the reigns of Edward I to Richard III, it was a turbulent period: the conquest of Wales, the Hundred Years War and the Wars of the Roses, but it was also a time of piety, learning and economic development, marked by the endowment of monasteries and of colleges, many of which have survived to the present day as evidence of the remarkable achievements of this period. Men and women from all walks of life feature among the 200 biographies in the volume. Each entry places the subject in the context of their age and evokes what was distinctive and interesting about their personality and achievement. The biographies are arranged in a broadly chronological rather than alphabetical sequence so that the reader may easily browse from one contemporary to the next. The index, with its many cross-references, reveals further linkages between contemporaries. Each volume is a portrait of an age, presenting history in a biographical form which complements the conventional approach.
