The James Ford Lectures : Old problems, new approaches

AFTER THE BLACK DEATH: Society, economy and the law in fourteenth-century England

Speaker: Professor Mark Bailey (University of East Anglia)

 

The scale, impact and significance of the Black Death have divided opinion since the nineteenth century, but recent multi-disciplinary research has sought to restore its central position in the transition from feudal to modern society.  The reconstruction of the institutional framework of pre-plague England—as revealed through the workings of the land, labour and grain markets—enables its subsequent dynamic interaction with sudden and precipitous demographic decline to be properly explored.
