Beginning in the long twelfth century with the Norman Conquest of England, through to the War of the Roses and the rise of the Tudors in the late fifteenth century, this course provides an integrated history of England in the medieval period. Examining in detail the issues of community and social bonds, economic change, population change, disease, political structures, ecclesiastical structures and political upheaval, students will gain a foundational understanding of the process of conquest, the expansion of art and of a written culture, the impact of the warfare; also the relationships between lords and labourers; development of trade and urbanization, the spread of written culture, the development of the common law and parliament, and the relationships between Britain, Ireland, Wales and the continent.
