The Medieval English Landscape, 1000-1540
Graeme J. White
"This book, which will appeal to both students and scholars alike, fills a gap in the subject dealing as it does with the full range of structures to be found in the medieval countryside ... It provides an up-to-date and lively discussion of the development of the medieval landscape from the pre-Conquest period to the Reformation and will swiftly become a standard text for those interested in the subject.' - Dr Robert Liddiard, University of East Anglia, UK
