The contributors to this collection of essays in honour of the distinguished medieval historian Edward Miller pay tribute by writing on the society and economy of England between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries. They address many of the most important themes of an era that witnessed profound change in rural, commercial, urban and industrial life, and they focus in particular on the progress achieved and the problems encountered. The subjects covered include the growth of London, the commercial and urban development of the north, Italian merchants and banking, overseas trade, taxation, farm servants, hunting and poaching, changing relations between landlords and tenants, the expansion of the economy in the twelfth century, and the great slump of the fifteenth. The book has been written by leading experts, and is a major contribution to English medieval economic and social history.
