By the early 13th century the Norman abbey of Caen had amassed extensive property in both England and France. This volume provides a critical edition of early documents concerning the French estates: 21 original charters from before 1230, two series of surveys made c.1113 and c.1175-80, and 27 further documents from the abbey's cartulary. Each Latin text is furnished with an English summary and notes, and Walmsley's introduction highlights the information the documents provide about society and administration.
