Medieval Towns Midterm


In this essay, I will explain how the development or functioning of the medieval town of Ipswich reflects the development of the commercial revolution and rise of towns more generally. Specifically, I will use the document “Oaths of officers and burgesses” and a couple of other additional documents to help make my case here.
