(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Historians of Angevin England

Michael Staunton

Oxford University Press

This Introduction sets out the scope of the book, its approach to the subject of historical writing in Angevin England, its place within existing scholarship, and the main divisions of the book. It introduces nine writers who composed histories of recent events in England in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries, and who constitute the focus of the book. It explains that they demand our attention not only because of the individual qualities of the writers themselves, but for what they tell us about historical interpretation in Angevin England. This chapter also includes a survey of relevant scholarship, and an outline of the book chapters.

Keywords:   Angevin England, historical interpretation, historical writing, scholarship, relevant scholarship
