Counter This is the first study to offer a detailed explanation of the form, structure, and evolution of the manorial records upon which all historical studies of medieval England are based. Beginning with a discussion of the nature and variety of the manor, as well as its origins and developments, the book then proceeds to dissect each category of manorial documents --surveys, extents, rentals, inventories, accounts, and court rolls-- which are considered in turn, and exemplified.
