Summary Book Review Lords and Communities in Early Medieval East Anglia by Andrew Wareham:
Download or read book Lords and Communities in Early Medieval East Anglia written by Andrew Wareham and published by Boydell Press. This book was released on 2005 with total page 214 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Investigation of the growing regional power of the English aristocracy in the central middle ages. The period between the late tenth and late twelfth centuries saw many changes in the structure and composition of the European and English aristocracy. One of the most important is the growth in local power bases and patrimonies at the expense of wider property and kinship ties. In this volume, the author uses the organisation of aristocracy in East Anglia as a case-study to explore the issue as a whole, considering the extent to which local families adopted national and European values, and investigating the role of local circumstances in the formulation of regional patterns and frameworks. The book is interdisciplinary in approach, using anthropological, economic and prosopographical research to analyse themes such as marriage and kinship, social mobility, relations between secular and ecclesiastical lords, ethnic groups, and patterns of economic growth amongst social groupings; there is a particular focus too on how different landscapes - fenland, upland, coastal and urban - affected the pattern of aristocratic experience. Dr ANDREW WAREHAM is a Research Associate at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King'sCollege London.

Summary Book Review East Anglia and its North Sea World in the Middle Ages by David Bates:
Download or read book East Anglia and its North Sea World in the Middle Ages written by David Bates and published by Boydell Press. This book was released on 2013-08-15 with total page 366 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: East Anglia was a distinctive English region during the Middle Ages, but it was one that owed much of its character and identity to its place in a much wider "North Sea World" that stretched from the English Channel to Iceland, the Baltic and beyond. Relations between East Anglia and its maritime neighbours have for the most part been peaceful, involving migration and commercial, artistic, architectural and religious exchanges, but have also at times been characterised by violence and contestation. This interdisciplinary collection of essays discusses East Anglia in the context of this maritime framework and explores the extent to which there was a distinctive community bound together by the shared frontier of the North Sea during the Middle Ages.
Summary Book Review The Minor Railways of East Anglia by Rob Shorland-Ball:
Download or read book The Minor Railways of East Anglia written by Rob Shorland-Ball and published by Pen and Sword Transport. This book was released on 2020-10-19 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rob Shorland-Ball is a former teacher and a born story teller and so is well aware of the strong local loyalties in East Anglia. Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex are considered to be very different separate and independent areas by their inhabitants. When the author worked in Suffolk he explained that he came from Cambridge which he believed was the front door of East Anglia, an elderly Suffolk man to whom he was speaking, paused for a while and then said, with unarguable finality, "Here in Suffolk if Cambridge exists at all , it is a back door and rarely used." The minor railways illustrated in this book were once busy transport links and made vital contributions to the social and business heritage of the areas they served. By the 1950s and 60s, when the author explored them, they were rarely used, so needed to be recorded and their stories told before they were forgotten entirely. To bring this book up to date, the final section is called Destiny because some of the track beds have survived and flourished with new usage as restored heritage railways, footpaths and cycleways and one route as a busy busway.

Summary Book Review The Angel Roofs of East Anglia by Michael Rimmer:
Download or read book The Angel Roofs of East Anglia written by Michael Rimmer and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2015-08-27 with total page 142 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Shortlisted for the East Anglian Book Awards 2016! It has been estimated that over 90% of England's figurative medieval art was obliterated in the image destruction of the Reformation. Medieval angel roofs, timber structures with spectacular and ornate carvings of angels, with a peculiar preponderance in East Anglia, were simply too difficult for Reformation iconoclasts to reach. Angel roof carvings comprise the largest surviving body of major English medieval wood sculpture. Though they areboth masterpieces of sculpture and engineering, angel roofs have been almost completely neglected by academics and art historians, because they are inaccessible, fixed and challenging to photograph. 'The Angel Roofs of East Anglia' is the first detailed historical and photographic study of the region's many medieval angel roofs. It shows the artistry and architecture of these inaccessible and little-studied medieval artworks in more detail and clarity than ever before, and explains how they were made, by whom, and why. Michael Rimmer redresses the scholarly neglect and brings the beauty, craftsmanship and history of these astonishing medieval creations to the reader. The book also offers a fascinating new answer to the question of why angel roofs are so overwhelmingly an East Anglian phenomenon, but relatively rare elsewhere in the country.

Summary Book Review Bogie Tales of East Anglia by M. H. James:
Download or read book Bogie Tales of East Anglia written by M. H. James and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2019-02-24 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally published in 1891, Bogie Tales of East Anglia by Margaret Helen James was the first book devoted to the folklore of East Anglia. However, the book vanished into obscurity soon after publication, and has never been reprinted until now. Featuring witchcraft, ghosts, charms, traditional cures, legendary tales and an assortment of terrifying spectres (including East Anglia's demon dog, Black Shuck), Margaret James's book is an important source for the folklore current in the Waveney Valley and Suffolk coast in the late 19th century. This critical edition, with an introduction and detailed notes by the folklorist Francis Young, makes available for the first time a rare and elusive book on the supernatural folklore of Norfolk and Suffolk.
