Mapping the Medieval Countryside

Mapping the Medieval Countryside is a digital edition of the medieval English inquisitions post mortem (IPMs), currently covering the period 1418-1447.

IPMs recorded the lands held at their deaths by tenants of the crown, and are the single most important source for the study of landed society in medieval England. Describing the lands held by thousands of families, from nobles to peasants, they are a key source for the history of almost every parish in England and many in Wales.
