The wealth of documentary material assembled in this volume brings to light the medieval origins of the most famous enclosure of modern Britain, and thereby makes an important contribution to our understanding of the making of the English landscape. The sources include many instruments of land conveyance among a large group of local freeholders, as well as a variety of manorial documents covering Holkham's several manors. Of particular importance is the "Neel cartulary", an exceptional document of medieval estate management and a key source for the study of the Norfolk landscape.
