Oxford Illustrated History of Medieval England by Nigel Saul
Book DescriptionThis richly illustrated book provides a comprehensive introduction to medieval England. Written by expert scholars and drawing on the latest research, it offers an authoritative survey of the years from the departure of the Roman legions to the Battle of Bosworth. The middle ages were a time of profound diversity and change. The main political themes are explored in three narrative chapters, covering the Anglo-Saxon period, the Normans and Angevins, and the late middle ages. Chapters on the social, cultural, and religious life of the period add context to the political and institutional developments traced and cover topics as varied as the nature of national identity, urban life, art and architecture, religious practice, and the development of vernacular literature. 180 illustrations, maps, family trees, a chronology, guide to further reading, and a full index make this an indispensable guide to England in the middle ages.

Lordship and Faith, Hardback (January 2017)
Explores the history of the English medieval parish church through the eyes of their lordly proprietors, asking why they decided to build churches, how they paid for them, how often they attended church, and how they interacted with the parishioners, weaving together themes of religious, social and architectural history.
For Honour and Fame, Paperback (June 2012)
The world of medieval chivalry is at once glamorous and violent, alluring yet alien. This title charts the introduction of chivalry by the Normans, the rise of the knightly class as a social elite, the fusion of chivalry with kingship in the fourteenth century and the influence of chivalry on literature, religion and architecture.
English Church Monuments in the Middle Ages, Paperback (June 2011)
The first comprehensive survey of English medieval church monuments for nearly a century, English Church Monuments examines all types of monument-cross slabs, brasses, incised slabs, sculpted effigies-analysing them in an historical context to show what they reveal of the self image and religious aspirations of those they commemorate.
