Using this theme to explore village life and showing how peasants were affected by the changes over time and place, this study employs primary source material from the Winchester estates. Analyzing thousands of land exchanges and interactions across more than 50 different manors on Winchester, this volume reveals unparalleled opportunities for comparing regional and local differences of experience.
