This is the only book on the market to provide an in-depth analysis and discussion of the theme of migration in medieval England. Its themes - the movement of people and the social and cultural effects of migration - chime strongly with current debates in the UK on immigration; the book demonstrates that movement was a constant influence on the development of the kingdom of England and the concept of Englishness.
