Description
The history of northern England in the fifteenth century is inextricably linked with the history of Richard III. It is well established that Richard, both as Duke of Gloucester and king, enjoyed a special relationship with the region and that as a result of his rise to power the region played a brief but central role in the affairs of the kingdom. This collection of papers, delivered at the third triennial conference of the Richard III Society, offers a fresh and stimulating reappraisal of the society that Richard III described as his home, and his relationship with it. Historical analysis focuses on particular counties (Cumberland, Durham and Yorkshire), institutions (the Crown, the law and the Church), individuals (including Richard III) and Anglo-Scottish relations. The papers reflect current caution about the character of 'The North' and its distinctiveness, exploring themes which relate directly to the received image of a distant, lawless, rebellious country - the north of the fifteenth-century imagination. A particular feature is an appendix of selected, previously unpublished documents.
