Product Description


Engaging and tremendously informative. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW Admirably thorough and full of new things... a most useful addition to studies of the thirteenth-century English aristocracy.

SPECULUM This book is...without doubt important to our understanding of the thirteenth century on a number of levels. (It is) the product of extremely thorough and painstaking research and makes an illuminating and very important contribution to our understanding of thirteenth century politics and government. REVIEWS IN HISTORY Marc Morris has mastered the huge amount of documentary evidence...to produce an eminently readable narrative.

This book is a detailed, informative and scholarly treatment of the Bigod family. It is very well documented. The author makes an effort to demonstrate the culture of the thirteenth century.

This was a disappointing purchase and read. One can appreciate that a lot of research has gone into the collection of material. There are endless statistics but neither Roger nor Hugh Bigod come to life as characters. In fact Roger Bigod has a greater presence in Marc Morris's very worthwhile tome on Edward I 'A great and terrible King'. I cannot recommend this volume, particularly at the price demanded.

A great resource, well written 23 Aug. 2013
By Stephen St Clair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marc Morris has created a wonderful resource here that sheds so much light on medieval England. I highly recommend this book. Our family were associated with the Bigod family in England, so this was very personal. Thank you Mr. Morris.
