The Carmen de Hastingae proelio of Guy, Bishop of Amiens by Wido( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Carmen de Hastingae Proelio is one of the most discussed sources for the Norman Conquest of England. Its authorship and date cannot be established entirely beyond dispute, but the weight of scholarly opinion supports a date of composition of 1068 or earlier, by Guy, bishop of Amiens, thus making it the earliest surviving account. It was known to Orderic Vitalis, one of the great chroniclers of the period, writing about 1124-5, and remains a source of intrinsic interest and importance. It is an epic poem, concerned with some of the most momentous events of a remarkable year, in which Halley's comet was a disturbing portent of undisclosed disasters." "For this second edition, Frank Barlow has written an entirely new and substantial historical introduction, incorporating the scholarly research of a generation. He has also provided a fresh translation and notes, as well as revising the Latin text of the l972 edition by Catherine Morton and Hope Muntz."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The feudal kingdom of England, 1042-1216 by Frank Barlow( Book )

19 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now in its fifth edition, this hugely successful text remains as vivid and readable as ever. Frank Barlow illuminates every aspect of the Anglo-Norman world, but the central appeal of the book continues to be its firm narrative structure. Here is a fascinating story compellingly told. At the beginning of the period he shows us an England that is still, politically and culturally, on the fringe of the classical world. By the end of John's reign, the new world that has emerged was in outlook, structure and character, recognisable as part of the modern age. Incorporating the findings of the most re
