The Lady in Medieval England 1000-1500

The Lady in Medieval England 1000-1500 by Peter R. Coss

Exactly what it describes.  Strictly looking at the lady, with some discussion of what the term meant.

Stuff from the Doomsday Book, to wills, to coats of arms.  Court cases about abduction and murder. Statues of women and indications of significance.  Letters to and from ladies.  And lots of stuff.
