After a general survey of the main developments from the fourth century to the eleventh, the book offers analysis of:

* the history of settlement

* the making of the landscape

* the growth of towns and trade

* the consequences of the Norman Conquest.

The author also considers the various influences; British, Frankish, Viking and Christian that helped shape English society and contributed to the making of a united kingdom.
