David Nicholas on #MedievalEngland

England was a small kingdom, which goes far to explain its precocious transition from the state based on personal relations to the institutional-territorial state… [In the 14th century] [t]he English kings had the most sophisticated system of tax assessment and collection in Europe. – David Nicholas, The Northern Lands – Germanic Europe, c. 1270-c. 1500 (2009)
