The essays collected in this volume identify and analyse the presence of immigrants in late medieval England. Drawing on unique evidence from the alien subsidies collected in England between 1440 and 1487 and other newly accessible archival resources, and deploying a wide range of historical and cultural methods, they reveal the considerable contribution of foreign-born people to the economy, society and culture of England in the age of the Black Death, the Hundred Years War and the Wars of the Roses.
