This chapter examines British research and publications concerning medieval economic history. It shows that the study of medieval economy and society helps to unify a number of areas of research and has developed an important position as a hub with links to many other disciplines. It explores the evolving interpretations of the medieval economy and society that have had a strong influence on the academic community and which have played their part in bringing about a shift in attitudes towards the past in general and the middle ages in particular.
