Medieval Noble Families

Dr. Nicholas Paul Studies Medieval Noble Families

Don't leave your family laundry lying around Dr. Nicholas Paul, unless your lineage goes back to the middle ages. Paul studies medieval noble families by reading the official histories those families recorded about themselves. It's tough to say what those stories can really tell us about a world so many centuries away, and even tougher to draw comparisons to families then and now. "The value is in the difference," says Paul.
