Readers are treated to snippets about life in society: the traumas which take place, the many wars, the clearance of Jews and the peasant revolt in Bury St. Edmunds. They are also regaled with storied about the lives of Lady Katherine’s children, covering the making of a knight, tournaments, festivals and markets from that time, the manor court and village hangings.
