Overview

A Medieval Society: The West Midlands at the End of the Thirteenth Century by R. H. Hilton

This book portrays the rural and urban economies and the social structure of the West Midlands of England at a peak period of medieval growth, the end of the thirteenth century. The subject matter ranges from lords to peasants, from merchants to artisans, and from bishops to parish priests. It depicts life in the village, in the town and in the forest, and analyses the modes of social control exercised by ruling groups and the resistance of the ruled.
