It is here republished with new pictures and updated notes to supplement the original text. Former professor at Oxford and Leicester, W.G. Hoskins is acknowledged as a historian who can communicate with the general reader as well as with other historians. His previous books include "Provincial England", "Local History in England" and "The Age of Plunder".
