The impact of the Norman victory over England brought about as broad and fundamental a social change as any that has taken place subsequently, and Round's book has been in constant demand since its original publication in 1895. His scrupulous care in collating the facts of eleventh and twelfth century feudalism combines with his sane deductions to create what has become a work of unquestioned authority. In the foreword to a later edition Sir Frank Stenton calls it a contribution to learning which would place any man among the energizing forces in the scholarship of his day.
