Dr. Cownie analyses the pattern of gifts to religious houses on both sides of the Channel, looking at the reasons why they were made; she argues that they demonstrate the plural nature of the Anglo-Norman aristocracy, large sections of which had interests not Anglo-Norman but essentially either English or Norman. Through its systematic analysis of a central aspect of the relationship between England and Normandy, the study thus makes an important contribution to an understanding of Anglo-Norman society."@en ;
