A new book appeared this month, September 2015, published by one of our colleagues, Roger Wickson. Roger was headmaster of the King’s School in Chester, but in retirement taught Keele adult education classes in Nantwich. His new book looks at the relationship between kings and bishops in medieval England from the Norman Conquest to Magna
and evolved in part from the classes which he taught. He modestly disclaims the book as an ‘original work’, but it is likely to serve as a very welcome introduction for students and the interested lay historian to a world which can confuse. The book is published by Palgrave ISBN 9781137431165 at £20.
