The feudal system

Feudalism: The social and economic system which characterized most European societies in Middle Ages.

The system was not unique to Western Europe; the granting of land in return for military service, has appeared all over the world in many different kinds of society- Japan under the shogunates in the 19th century, for example.

 

Unique in England, the village of Laxton in Nottinghamshire continues to retain some vestiges of the feudal system, where the land is still farmed using the open field system. The feudal court now only meets annually, with its authority now restricted to management of the farmland.
