The black book of Hexham: a northern monastic estate in 1379

The black book of Hexham: a northern monastic estate in 1379
The Black Book of Hexham is a major source for the social, agrarian and landscape history of the northern counties of medieval England. Containing a detailed survey of the Priory's estates in 1379, it has until now been available only in an obscure Victorian Latin transcription of the lost original document. This volume is the first full English translation, complete with extensive supporting commentary, an authoritative introduction and glossary. It is accompanied by translations of a large selection of additional medieval charters, grants and other records of the Priory's property alongside the Dissolution survey of 1536. The collection sheds unrivalled light on the development of a significant monastic estate in the northern counties through to the end of the medieval period. It will be an indispensable guide to students of the medieval economy and society in the north of England, and of wide appeal to those interested in the history of Tynedale, Northumberland, Durham, Cumberland and Yorkshire

Abstract

The Black Book of Hexham is a major source for the social, agrarian and landscape history of the northern counties of medieval England. Containing a detailed survey of the Priory's estates in 1379, it has until now been available only in an obscure Victorian Latin transcription of the lost original document. This volume is the first full English translation, complete with extensive supporting commentary, an authoritative introduction and glossary. It is accompanied by translations of a large selection of additional medieval charters, grants and other records of the Priory's property alongside the Dissolution survey of 1536. The collection sheds unrivalled light on the development of a significant monastic estate in the northern counties through to the end of the medieval period. It will be an indispensable guide to students of the medieval economy and society in the north of England, and of wide appeal to those interested in the history of Tynedale, Northumberland, Durham, Cumberland and Yorkshire
