The chapter notes the neglect of the period 1300–1550 in the study of migration to England, and the reasons for this neglect. It sets out the political, military, social and economic conditions of England and or continental Europe in the period as background to the various ‘push’ and ‘pull’ factors that caused people to move to England. It examines the medieval and modern vocabulary of migration, and especially the words ‘alien’, ‘foreigner’, ‘stranger’ and ‘immigrant’.
