Anglo-Norman Durham, 1093-1193
‘The Forged Charters of William the Conqueror and Bishop William of Saint-Calais’
An excellent companion to Symeon of Durham by one of the same editors, David Rollason. The book contains thirty essays by distinguished scholars in four sections: The Monks and the Priory; Church Architecture; The Prince Bishops, and Scholarship and Manuscripts. The date in the title (1093-1193) is slightly misleading as three of the essays range from 1066 to 1214. A very good book.
For those interested in the history of Durham this is a must, my history minded son in law loved it.
