Excerpt

This book is an attempt to describe the society of early medieval England without quoting evidence drawn from an earlier or later period than that to which the book relates. I have used the writings of many of my fellow labourers in the field of medieval history, but the absence of footnotes in this book prevents the acknowledgement of my debts. No acknowledgements could ever adequately express my obligation to my husband, who persuaded me to undertake this work, encouraged me to persevere in it, and helped me at every turn. But for him it would never have been written.
