Monastic archaeology : papers on the study of medieval monasteries by G Keevill( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of monasteries has come a long way since late the late 19th century. The emphasis has shifted away from reconstructing the layouts of monastic buildings to a better understanding of the wider monastic environment. The papers in this volume, partly based on a conference held in Oxford in 1994, are written by some of today's foremost scholars and reflect the diversity of research now being carried out. --Book cover
The landscape of towns by Michael Aston( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 2000 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using evidence derived from field-work, observation, documentary sources and archaeology, the authors show how to trace the landscape of the town, revealing its invisible past and its future potential. This clearly written and eminently readable book teems with examples of how towns have acquired their present appearance - how, for example, Norwich is a linked group of Roman, Saxon and Scandinavian elements, all of them still discernible to the informed eye. Towns, the authors argue, are more than just places where people go for shopping, entertainment and employment. They are intricate compositions made up of many features, man-made and natural, ancient and modern. The Landscape of Towns brings to life the rich variety of town life over two millennia, exploring prehistoric settlements, Roman towns, medieval communities, Regency spas, Victorian industrial towns and the spectre of urban redevelopment in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET

Interpreting the English village : landscape and community at Shapwick, Somerset by Michael Aston( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An original and approachable account of how archaeology can tell the story of the English village. Shapwick lies in the middle of Somerset, next to the important monastic centre of Glastonbury: the abbey owned the manor for 800 years from the 8th to the 16th century and its abbots and officials had a great influence on the lives of the peasants who lived there. It is possible that abbot Dunstan, one of the great reformers of tenth century monasticism directed the planning of the village. The Shapwick Project examined the development and history of an English parish and village over a ten thous

Christ's poor men : the Carthusians in England by Glyn Coppack( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1088 by St Bruno at the Grande Chartreuse in France, the Carthusians came to Britain almost a hundred years later. Only nine permanent monasteries were established before the Reformation, and six of these were founded after the Black Death nearly 200 years later." "Yet their influence far exceeded their numbers. They were exceptionally well regarded in the later Middle Ages, providing a late flowering of British monasticism when other religious orders were in decline. Supported by the highest levels of society, the Carthusians are remarkably well documented, and we can see how their life was sustained by agricultural estates, bequests from the local laity, and the income from burials and masses. It was they who particularly stood up to Henry VIII, and three of their nine priors were butchered for their beliefs." "The evidence of archaeology is also significant. Of the total of nine English charterhouses five have substantial remains (Mount Grace being the best preserved and most accessible) and a further two have excellent earthworks. Together these sites provide considerable information about how the Carthusians lived, prayed, and died, and how their life differed from that of other orders of monks and nuns."--BOOK JACKET
