Anglo-Norman warfare

£24.99

Product description

The influence of war on late Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman society was dominant and all-pervasive. This volume brings together for the first time many of the most fundamental articles hitherto published on warfare in England and Normandy in the 11th and 12th centuries, combining the work of some of the foremost scholars in the field.;Redressing the tendency to study military institutions and obligations in isolation from the practice of war, equal emphasis is here given both to organization and the composition of forces, and to strategy, tactics and conduct in war. The aim is to provide not only an in-depth analysis of the nature of war itself, but also firmly to place the study of warfare in a broader social, political and cultural context. The themes dealt with largely span the period of the Conquest, offering an assessment of the extent to which the Norman invasion marked radical change or a degree of continuity in the composition of armies and in methods of fighting.;This collection, with an introduction and select bibliography, should be useful not simply to students of medieval warfare, but to those studying Anglo-Norman society and its ruling warrior aristocracy whose raison d'etre was war. Overall in good condition, some slight rubbing to the corners.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
