  • how new Norman conquerors built cathedrals, monastries and castles, which changed the English landscape forever
  • how by 1215 the king's administration had become more sophisticated and centralized
  • how the acceptance of the Magna Carta by King John in 1215 would revolutionize the world in centuries to come.

This volume will make essential reading for all students and researchers of medieval history.
