Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Using historical, topographical and archaeological evidence, this book explores the earliest history of two fundamental institutions in 9th and 10th century Bavaria: the development of the urban 'borough' and the emergence of castle-based lordship withinthe comital organization of the countryside, which formed the twin bases for the estate-based feudal constitution of the high Middle Ages.
