About this product
- DescriptionAt last a major topic in early medieval English history has found its author, who deals with it comprehensively and systematically. ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW A landmark teatment...immensely enriches the debate about early medieval working classes. SPECULUM Slaves were part of the fabric of English society throughout the Anglo-Saxon era and the twelfth century, but as the base of the social pyramid, they have left kwn written records; there are, however, extensive references to them throughout the documents and writings of the period. This important study seeks to assemble the evidence, drawn from a variety of sources in Old English and Latin, to convey a picture of slaves and slavery in England, viewed against the background of English society as a whole. An extensive appendix on the vernacular termilogy of slavery reveals the concepts of enslavement to be embedded in the religious imagery of the period. DAVID PELTERET is Senior Research Fellow, Department of History, King's College London.
