Book Description

This well-known text, the standard account of the subject, is essential reading for students and scholars of the Norman period from undergraduate level upwards, and was hailed on first publication as: " a landmark in twelfth-century studies." Written in the form of a biography this completely revised and updated edition discusses the significant social, governmental and religious developments as they arose in the course of the narrative.
