This is a micro-history of a place that mirrors many of the changes taking place in wider England. Cooper charts the transformation of the village under its Norman overlords, the rise of yeomen and gentlemen in the sixteenth century, and the final ascendancy of the Goring family of Wiston, who by the nineteenth century had become the dominant landowners in the area. He brings the people of the village alive through the ages in a blend of economic and cultural history, uncovering the lives of ordinary men and women as well as those of priests, gentlemen and peers."--BOOK JACKET." ;
