about

This is an important new interpretation of the development of land law in England during the century after the Norman Conquest. Norman society was based on land and lordship, and the relative power of lord and vassal was crucial to the control of the land. John Hudson exploits a wealth of surviving charter and chronicle evidence in this scholarly analysis. His approach integrates social, political, administrative and intellectual history. Dr Hudson examines the uses to which lords and vassals put their lands, the relationship between them, and theconstraints upon them. He traces the increasing sophistication of law and the changes in royal reassessment of legal developments in the eleventh and twelfth centuries.
John Hudson is at University of St Andrews.

Editorial Reviews

`He is ... concerned with the power relations between king, barons and vassals, arguing, refreshingly, that in reality it was these more than anything else which determined the outcome of actual disputes. With sources that are exiguous and frequently ambiguous, his task is by no means an easyone.'Peter Coss, University of Northumbria, EHR, June 1996
