Description

Throughout the middle ages, Norwich was one of the most populous and celebrated cities in England. Dominated by its castle and cathedral priory, it was the centre of government power in East Anglia, as well as an important trading entrepot. With records dating back to Anglo-Saxon times, and many buildings surviving from the middle ages, the history of medieval Norwich is an exceptionally rich one. Medieval Norwich is an account of the growth of the city, with its walls, streams, markets, hospitals and churches, and the lives of its citizens. It traces activities and beliefs, as well as the tensions lying not far beneath the surface that eventually erupted in Kett's Rebellion of 1549.

He has edited several volumes of correspondence and diaries, most recently of a Norwich textile merchant whose business ventures took him to many parts of Europe. Carole Rawcliffe is Professor of Medieval History and a former Director of the Centre of East Anglian Studies at UEA, having previously worked in London as co-editor of the medieval volumes of The History of Parliament.
