We will soon receive delivery of our volumes for the House of Commons 1422-1461, and so our medieval team are turning their attention to an exciting new project that will cover the Parliaments of no fewer than five English monarchs: those convened by Edward IV, Edward V, Richard III and Henry VII between 1461 and 1504, as well as the Parliament summoned during  Henry VI’s readeption in 1470-71. The team, headed up by Dr Hannes Kleineke, will blog on topics and events that relate to the project as well as pieces that tie in to wider themes on the History of Parliament Trust’s main blog page.
