Abstract

This session will consider the history of parliament and counsel in the reign of Edward II of England, focussing on both textual materials and proposopographical approaches. It aims to reconsider a number of important texts and historiographical issues and to offer some new methodologies, and new insights, on material and issues that are of fundamental importance to an understanding of early fourteenth century English history.
