Oxford University Press

This chapter places the development of York and its civic institutions in the context of the development of the county of Yorkshire. It addresses issues of changing population size and structure, the foundation and distribution of markets and fairs, and the development of overseas trade. All these developments shaped the development of distinctive institutions in York, in particular the foundation and attempted reform of market places, the reconstruction of the city walls, and the development of summer festivals culminating in the rise of the feast of Corpus Christi in the middle fourteenth century.

Keywords:   rural population change, urban population change, markets, market places, fairs, fair grounds, urban processions, Corpus Christi
