Welcome to Mapping the Medieval Countryside

Welcome to the blog and website for Mapping the Medieval Countryside. The website is an interim site providing information about the project and about inquisitions post mortem more generally. The section on 'Contexts' contains introductory features aimed primarily at users who are new to the source and/or period. 'Featured Inquisitions' contains more detailed studies of the documents and their historical value. Both will be updated regularly: suggestions for topics to be covered are very welcome, as are contributions.

The blog will provide regular updates about the project's progress and associated news and events, and will contain briefer reflections on IPMs and their use by historians. Again your comments and suggestions will be very welcome.
