This is an authoritative and comprehensive account of what life was like in England at a time when the country was more closely tied with Europe than ever before. Securely based on a wide range of sources, the study explores the ways in which the foreign kings controlled almost every aspect of life with a strict social order.
This lively and far-reaching account of the politics, religion, and culture of England in the century and a half after the Norman Conquest provides a vivid picture of everyday existence, and increases our understanding of all aspects of medieval society. There are colourful details of the everyday life of ordinary men and women, with their views on the past, on sexuality, on animals, on death, the undead, and the occult. The result is a fascinating and comprehensive portrayal of a period which begins with conquest and ends in assimilation.
