This chapter examines British works on the study of medieval European history. It explores the evolution of the field of historical scholarship in Great Britain during the twentieth century and investigates the reasons and consequences for changes that can be situated in a wider context. It discusses medieval European history in Britain before and after World War 2 and stresses the need to get British work on medieval Europe into perspective, given that continental history is always a minority subject within medieval history.
