- The Making of the Landscape, Part I: The Medieval Countryside

- Understanding Manorial Records 1500-1900
The manorial system survived in a residual form into the first quarter of the twentieth century. Even in the modern period its records can yield much valuable information, but they are not always easy to understand and are not used as much as they deserve
