“This is an excellent book, not just in its detailed evidence but as an arresting survey of rural society, particularly at the sub-aristocratic level. It extends our knowledge of social history with new insights into how people lived, worked, ate, traded and related to one another.” ―Nicholas Orme.

As for the two star reviewer, I'm puzzled by his comment regarding "...marketed to a general audience..." That's comparing apples and oranges. I think no one here is under the illusion any of Dyer's books will ever be recommended by Oprah's book club.
I'm also disappointed with his slight towards Dyer (re:justification). When I read a Dyer book, I know I am reading a lecture based on extensive period sources and minutiae.
Connecting the dots from eight hundred years past is no small task, but Dyer does so and more importantly, he shows you how he did it.
