It is a crucial source of information on the reign of Henry II and consists of annals and a wide variety of documents, presented here in the original Latin. The chronicle was originally attributed to Benedict of Peterborough (c.1135 93), who kept the manuscript in his library.

This was disputed by the scholar William Stubbs (1825 1901), who edited this work for the Rolls Series in 1867. It is now widely accepted that the author was Roger of Hoveden (d. 1201/2), clerk to Henry II and present during Richard Is journey to take part in the Third Crusade. Volume 1 includes extensive historiographical commentary and appendices.

Volume 2 includes extensive commentary on the governance of Henry II.
