About Berkshire

The twelfth and thirteenth centuries saw a dual process: The importation of feudal model of landholding and its naturalisation as a practical, working system. The pattern of feudal settlement as a result varied from one region to another, but still more so within each locality; the already heavily settled, fertile area of east Berwickshire, for example, resembled a patchwork quilt of different working arrangements.

The same centuries also saw the development of a cash economy, which was connected only indirectly to the new feudal kingship and which had as great an impart on the fabric of rural life as feudalism; surplus grain, produce and livestock might be sold in a local market, and rents were increasingly paid in cash rather than in kind. The land itself did not see a massive colonisation and extension of settlement after 1100. It was already extensively settled by 1100, shown in the striking fact that the majority of rural place-names can be traced to the period before 1250. Yet over the course of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries it would be more intensively settled and farmed than ever before.

Royal Berkshire, from Royal Windsor Castle, to Bracknell and Wallingford, favourite haunts of Dick Turpin the highwayman, a county with historic extremes whose present day musical taste ranges through classical, folk and jazz and with its proximity to London, a lively bands scene
