Tradition and Transformation in the English landscape, 400-1100 AD

A St Kyneburgha Building Preservation Trust Event 

How did the territories, fields, commons and settlements of the English landscapes change over the six centuries between the withdrawal of Roman administration in around 410 AD and 1100, just after the Norman Conquest? What do the landscapes of territories, settlements, fields and commons reveal about what was owed to the Roman (and prehistoric) past, how much was evolution from that period, and how much innovation?

The evening is divided into two parts. The first focuses the period between about 400 and 800, the second on that between 800 and 1100. Each part uses place-names, ecology, archaeology, documents, O.S. and other maps, geology etc. to bring those past landscapes and the generations of people that made them to life, aiming to show that landscape history is something everyone can do.

Speaker:  Susan Oosthuizen, Professor Emerita, The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge
