My Postdoctoral Research Project

My project focusses on the administrative rolls of the nobility in late medieval England. I use two case studies from Northern England (the Bishops of Durham and the Earls of Northumberland) to compare ecclesiastical and secular manorial administration.

My study investigates questions concerning the contexts of production and the use of these documents. For example, exploring the relationship between the document and its user(s) and the connections between the contents, form and format. The project seeks to help to develop our understanding of the structure and implementation of administration of late medieval noble lordship.
