Editorial note and abbreviations
in Towns in medieval England

Editorial Note

All medieval texts have been rendered into modern English. The original language of each text is indicated at the end of the introductory note. Where the immediate source is a manuscript or an untranslated modern edition, the editor is responsible for the translation (whether from Latin – the medium of the vast majority of the records in question – or French or Middle English). In the case of sources in modern printed editions with a translated text, the editor has adapted this where necessary to modernise spelling and syntax and to remove the fustian language of earlier versions (noted as ‘revised by GR’). The glossary on pp. 286–90 has been added to the same end: an asterisk against a word indicates its inclusion in the glossary.
