The purpose of the book is to illustrate and encourage research into local history by means of surviving documents and fragments; it opens a way of actual study for many would-be local historians. Mr Tate's knowledge of documents and of the scattered literature dealing with them enabled him to describe and illustrate the evolution of local government.

This is the third edition of a classic. It is the standard study of the parochial administration in England. When the late W.E. Tate first wrote it, in 1946, there was no such book though all agreed that such a book was very much needed. The author modestly, in his Preface, hoped that his readers would regard the work as 'the essay of a fellow student rather than as the authoritative treatise of an expert'. That he wrought better than he knew, or would claim, is evidenced by the fact that - though subsequent editions have been extensively corrected, revised and updated - his book has stood the test of seven decades of intensive use by literally every worker in the field and enjoys universal veneration as the unsurpassed, definitive work; yet it is still essentially the same book that Mr Tate wrote seventy years ago. Mr Tate's purpose was to encourage research into local and family history by describing, explaining and illustrating the entire range of civil and ecclesiastical documents that occur in parish archives; traditionally, the 'parish chest'. Many examples of typical records of all kinds are printed, transcribed and related to the conditions and laws that gave rise to them and to the earlier phases of the evolving English society whose relics they are. The author's unrivalled knowledge of the documents and the literature dealing with them has enabled him not only to guide the modern searcher in the use and understanding of parish records, but also to trace and illustrate the developmetn of local government in England.Most local historians and genealogists have found that this exhaustive, yet easily read, scholarly yet humorous book has opened up new avenues of study or lines of rewarding research for them. This latest impression, in an enlarged and more attractive format, will undoubtedly perform the same seminal service for a further generation of searchers among England's vast store of parochial archives.

For centuries carved writings and artworks in churches lay largely unnoticed. So archaeologist Matthew Champion started a nationwide survey to gather the best examples. In this book he shines a spotlight on a forgotten world of ships, prayers for good fortune, satirical cartoons, charms, curses, windmills, word puzzles, architectural plans and heraldic designs. Drawing on examples from surviving medieval churches in England, the author gives a voice to the secret graffiti artists: from the lord of the manor and the parish priest to the people who built the church itself. Here are strange medieval beasts, knights battling unseen dragons, ships sailing across lime-washed oceans and demons who stalk the walls. Latin prayers for the dead jostle with medieval curses, builders’ accounts and slanderous comments concerning a long-dead archdeacon. Strange and complex geometric designs, created to ward off the ‘evil eye’ and thwart the works of the devil, share church pillars with the heraldic shields of England’s medieval nobility.
