Abstract

This session examines the interactions between the ‘centre’ and the regions in fourteenth- and early fifteenth-century England through three case studies of royal, noble and urban lordship. It aims to address important issues in the current scholarship about the formation of political groupings in the localities and the sense of political identity, or tension, between royal authority and local authority systems.
