Who, exactly, was responsible for the preservation of knowledge about the past? How did men and women preserve their recollections and pass them on to the next generation? Did they write them down or did they hand them on orally? For the first time, tombstones, medieval encyclopaedias and legal testimonies figure alongside perceptions of the medieval past.
