The Character of English Rural Society

Earls Colne, 1550-1750

Henry French and Richard Hoyle

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A very high profile publication which will be widely discussed - and disputed
  • Earls Colne has been discussed in the literature from the early 1970s onwards, but this is the first full-length study
  • Employs a pioneering methodology which will be much emulated in the future, and which reanimates debates about agrarian and social change
  • Joins one of a very small number of classic English village studies
  • Produces new, and unexpected conclusions to debates focused on one of the best documented, and most easily accessible early modern English village archives
