Book description

Information about women in the period from 500 to 1500 is in demand and has been a challenge for historians to uncover. Medievalist Bardsley has mined a wide range of primary sources, from noblewomen's writing, court rolls, chivalric literature, laws and legal documents, to archeology and artwork.
