Available in Stock
The strengthening of ties between crown and locality in England in the 14th century is epitomized by the relationships between two of the largest and wealthiest urban communities (York and Bristol) and the crown. This book combines a detailed study of the individuals who ruled Bristol and York at the time with analysis of the language of politics, thus offering a new perspective on relations between town and crown in late medieval England. Slightly off-mint.
