This survey is based on a reconstruction of the histories of the houses, plots, gardens, and fields in the city and suburbs of Winchester between c. 1300 and c. 1540. The reconstruction presents a gazetteer of 1,128 histories of properties, with accounts of 56 parish churches and the international fair of St Giles, all illustrated by detailed maps.

Reviews

Social and urban historians have in this volume a repository of data few medieval scholars would have dared attempt, much less thought possible to assemble.Prof. M. Altschul, American Historical Review (1986) ;

The entire work is an outstanding achievement of historical scholarship and the Clarendon Press has done it full justice in superb production. It should be studied with care by every medieval historian and is an essential purchase for any serious historical library.Prof. P.D.A. Harvey, English Historical Review (1986)
