Thirteenth Century England II
Proceedings of the Newcastle upon Tyne Conference 1987
Thirteenth Century England II continues the series which began in 1986 with the publication of the first volume of the biannual Newcastle upon Tyne conferences on thirteenth-century England. Important studies of aspects ofEnglish society and politics open up new areas of research and re-examine standard interpretations.
"`[The papers] cluster round two themes central to Powicke's work. One theme is knights and chivalrous society....The second theme is the 'constitutional' one of king, government and the law.. .a remarkably coherent and stimulating book." M.T. CLANCHY, EHR
"'The series provides a useful service in acting as a forum and focus of recent research in its particular field.' R. Malcolm Hogg History & Archaeology Review Spring 90" .
