First published in 1982, The English Medieval Landscape was written to recreate and analyse the development of the major elements of the medieval landscape.
Illustrated with maps and photographs, the book explores the nature of the English landscape between 1066 and 1485, from farms and chases to castles, monastic settlements, villages, roads, and more.
The English Medieval Landscape will appeal to those with an interest in medieval history and British social history.
