A Matter of History

The Governance of Mediaeval England from the Conquest to Magna Carta

by H.G. Richardson and G.O. Sayles
It is not often that medieaval history is subject for polemics and it is fitting that when it is, the object should be a man who has been in his grave sixty years and more. This book is an account of the growth of English institutions from 1066 to 1215.
