Excerpt from Mediaeval England: English Feudal Society From the Norman Conquest to the Middle of the Fourteenth Century It is no primitive or low civilisation that we have to describe in the England of 1066 - 1350 it differs from ours more in kind than in degree. In its own kind we cannot deny its majesty, for, though we may not always realise it, it still has dominion over us. Further, it is to be remembered that the English Middle Ages are in their main character one with the continental Middle Ages in certain aspects only have they a character peculiarly their own. In this volume the evidence must be strictly confined to England; but to those who read the mediaaval evidences it needs not to be said that much which is true of our country at that time is true also of others. Insularity was not in the Middle Ages a pre dominant English character. Our original oneness with the continent and the lines of our later diver gence become most perceptible to us when we travel in Europe, for it is upon the continent that we most often come across some of the outward signs of mediaeval life.
