Course Description

The English countryside during Richard III’s reign was undergoing major changes. Landlords were increasingly moving from arable to sheep farming, and some villages were becoming deserted. The countryside was dominated by monasteries and aristocratic residences, such as Middleham Castle, where Richard III spent much of his youth. Using surviving documents, including wills and correspondence, we will examine English rural communities in the later fifteenth century, focusing particularly on examples from Yorkshire. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
