Product Overview

From the time of Henry I onwards the medieval kings of England had a country retreat: a place to forget the burdens of government, to meet with mistresses and to indulge their passion for hunting. Tom Beaumont James and Christopher Gerrard tell the story of this great royal landscape, the largest deer park in the medieval kingdom, from the Palaeolithic through to the present day. They paint an evocative picture of Clarendon's medieval hunts and of the royal court; in 1289 Queen Eleanor received in the Palace the heads of two cranes, captured by gyrfalcons. After its medieval apogee, Clarendon went through a further transformation, into a private country estate. Aided by maps, line drawings and beautiful photography, the reader is able to explore a place of great resonance in English history, and chart its changes through time.
