City of Norwich Militia 1355.

Postby Chaucers Closet » Wed Dec 08, 2010 12:46 pm

Hello guys.

Does anyone have anything on the City of Norwich Militia from the 14thC please? So far I've managed to find the Rolls of View of arms 1355. But any other information you have would be gratefully received.
(Images especially)
Many thanks.

Militia probably is a poor term.
If you haven't already read Military Obligation in Medieval England you should.
You should look for terms like watch and ward and hue and cry in the documents of the town.
