Planning in the Early Medieval Landscape

John Blair and Stephen Rippon
Christopher Smart

Liverpool University Press

Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe LUP

  • The first book on a major aspect of early medieval technology, unrecognised until now
  • A completely new perspective on how villages and other settlement were formed
  • Combines map and field evidence with manuscript treatises on land-surveying to show that the methods described in the treatises were not just theoretical, but were put into practice
  • A novel application of applied statistics to research in medieval settlement archaeology
  • Throws new light on the interplay between elite learning and local agency in the construction of the medieval built environment
