Medieval York provides a comprehensive history of what is now considered England's most famous surviving medieval city, covering nearly a thousand years. The volume examines York from its post-Roman revival as a town (c. 600) to the major changes of the 1530s and 1540s, which in many ways brought an end to the Middle Ages in England. York was one of the leading English towns after London, and in status almost always the 'second city'.

Much research and publication has been carried out on various aspects of medieval York, but this volume seeks to cover the field in its entirety. David Palliser offers an up-to-date and broad-based account of the city by employing the evidence of written documents, archaeology (especially on the rich results of recent city centre excavations), urban morphology, numismatics, art, architecture, and literature. Special attention is paid to the city's religious drama and its wealth of surviving stained glass.

The story of Medieval York is set in a wide context to make comparisons with other English and Continental towns, to establish how far York's story was distinctive or was typical of other English towns which have been less fortunate in the survival of their medieval fabric. It is essential reading for anyone interested in York's past and in its rich heritage of medieval churches, guildhalls, houses, streets, and city walls - the most complete medieval circuit in England.

About the Author:


D.M. Palliser, a native of York, taught at the universities of Keele, Birmingham, Hull, and Leeds, before retiring in 2004. He is now Honorary Visiting Professor in History at the University of York and Emeritus Professor of Medieval History at the University of Leeds. He has been researching and publishing on the city of York for nearly fifty years, and has also worked on the broader subject of medieval and early modern urban history. His publications include Tudor York (1979) and Volume I of the authoritative Cambridge Urban History of Britain, as well as numerous articles on the city.

Review:


"Palliser's survey of England's best-known and quintessentially medieval city of York binds classic and recent historical studies with newer archaeological evidence, providing a sweeping but never superficial account of urban change over nine centuries...Palliser's masterful study reveals the richness and complexity of medieval urban life through his command of a vast variety of sources and the scholarship that interprets them"--CHOICE


"This book is an outstanding achievement that will be warmly welcomed by historians in the North of England and by urban historians throughout the land....This book will remain the standard version of the history of medieval York for years to come."--Northern History
