Edward Augustus Freeman (1823-1892) was Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, and one of the pre-eminent historians of his generation. Politics was a constant interest for Freeman, who was also a regular contributor to the Saturday Review. While he wrote on a variety of historical topics, from ancient Greece to the German Federation, and had a great interest in architecture, this six-volume work, published between 1867 and 1879, was his magnum opus. Freeman reconsiders how the history of the Conquest is understood and examines its causes and results. Volume 5 considers the effects of the Conquest, examining the reigns of William Rufus, Henry I, and Stephen in the light of those effects, rather than providing a narrative history of these reigns. Language and architecture also come under analysis in this volume.
