  • The Revival of Towns...
  • Guilds & New Business Practices
  • • Settlement in new land for freedom • Still worked on their land, but considered it their own since they paid rent. • Started a revolt against the fact that they used to not have a lot of freedom. (finally able to live free)
  • "The Norman Conquest"
  • Class Objective: Latin
  • The expansion of trade and food supply encouraged the growth of towns. The towns often arose at locations that were natural places for Merchants to gather. Many of the new towns were on lands held by feudal lord. If a lord tried to treat the towns people like serfs, they resisted. They wanted to make their own laws and settle disputes in their own courts.
  • Reforming English Law
  • Guilds are organizations formed by merchants and craft workers used for training. To become a craftsman in a guild you have to start out as an apprentice where you help master artisan. Then you become a journeyman and work for a master and a wage. If outside organized trades, traders cannot trade or else the guilds will shut them down. Competition does not fly with these guilds.
  • Tribes took over the land that is currently now England. The tribes then developed the land into 7 different kingdoms. Alfred the Great became the ruler of those kingdoms. Alfred the great was a very good ruler, he put classrooms in castles where they studied latin, and recorded everything that was happening around the land.
  • King Williams was one of the many great kings to be apart of the legal system. There have been many different attempts to have different kinds of laws but William's son, Henry I, established a set government. Royal judges would be sent out to do court cases. Common law was something that made life a lot more fair because it meant no matter what "rank," everyone had to abide by the same laws.
