The Archaeology of Medieval Monasteries

Monasteries were one of the most important and influential features of the medieval landscape. This lecture, given as part of the Monastic Heritage in Greensand Country conference organised by the Greensand Country Landscape Partnership examines the monastic landscapes of Britain throughout the Anglo-Saxon and medieval periods. Using examples from within the Greensand region and from further afield, the history of monasticism in Britain, the development of the monastic cloister and precinct, and the management of monastic estates are explored.
