Medieval Douai was one of the wealthiest cloth towns of Flanders, and it left an enormous archive documenting personal financial affairs--wills, marriage agreements, business contracts, and records of court disputes over property rights of all kinds. Historian Martha Howell reveals how these documents were produced in a centuries-long effort to regulate--and ultimately redefine--property and gender relations.
