    Exactly what it describes Strictly looking at the lady with some discussion of what the term meantStuff from the Doomsday Book to wills to coats of arms Court cases about abduction and murder Statues of women and indications of significance Letters to and from ladies And lots of stuff

    Pulls a lot of information from court records but doesn't really answer the uestion of are these the exceptions or the usual cases for upper class women in this time period

    DNF Interesting but I think it may be a thesis or something V academic and that makes it too difficult for me at the moment I’ll probably go back to it some other time

    The author is an academic specialist in English medieval social history with a special interest in knighthood and the gentry and these two volumes are best read as a pair While few knights in the medieval period became aristocrats all noblemen were knights at least in theory Beginning with the Conuest and the introduction of the feudal system they were the ruling class by virtue of arms though Coss also examines the Saxon roots of some aspects of knighthood He also considers in some detail the relationship of the knight first to gentility and then to lordship showing how the characteristics of knighthood were changed in the process The book’s only fault in fact is the lack of subject headings in the indexA knight must have a lady but while many books have been written about medieval women few have focused on the knight’s female counterpart in society Again emphasis is on the aristocracy since that’s where the records are though Coss depends heavily on surviving letters and contemporary literature as well as household accounts and he even employs such sources as monumental effigies and brasses Both books are stimulating studies with many examples drawn from noble families of the period

    This is a survey sort of book largely drawing from familiar source the Paston letters Margery Kemp's book Like most medieval history surveys I bought it for the pictures But I found it a uick read and it had a few juicy tidbits in there from less well known sources
