Description

This session focuses on prosopographical work concerning late medieval England. Because so many sources survive from late medieval England, prosopographical research provides a useful and relatively accessible way to organize much of the data on English people at virtually any level of society. Various documents record information on individuals and groups. The papers in this session apply the questions and methods of "collective biography" to their sources in order to get an idea of how society, in its many layers and hierarchies, operated.
