about this item

An exploration of how rural society in the Palatinate of Durham adapted to the fifteenth-century recession, and how this affected the ability of successive generations to respond to inflation. It looks at both the estates of the bishops of Durham and the monks of Durham Cathedral Priory, and those of the laity, investigating in particular how the tenants of this estates survived, and the emergence of the yeomanry as a social group.
