Abstract

Between the 12th and the 14th century, administrative practice developed apace in England and Wales, most notably in English royal government but also in episcopal and seigneurial households, with the development of offices and records to support various aspects of rulership. These two sessions, sponsored by the Pipe Roll Society (based at The National Archives and dedicated to publishing editions of the pipe rolls of the Exchequer and of other related medieval documents), explore the latest research in administrative practice and examine the extent to which practices were shared across institutional borders.
