This is a guide to researching women in the Middle Ages in England and Western Europe

Book Length Bibliographies

Scholarly experts compile bibliographies.  They describe, and sometimes annotate, works to read on a particular topic, in either list or bibliographic essay form.  The books here are older.  Be sure to use annual bibliographies and indexes to articles or newer encyclopedia/dictionary entries to find more recently written materials!
