Understanding the Landscape of Medieval Britain (ARC3401)

15 credits

This module will explain how archaeologists go about exploring the medieval landscape using a wide range of sources and techniques. It covers the methods used in reconstructing what medieval landscapes looked like, and explores the major components of those landscapes and the origins of the very marked regional variation that characterises the British countryside. Students are expected to already have a basic understanding of the principles and methods of archaeology for example through having taken ARC1020 ‘Essential Archaeological Methods’ and ARC1030 ‘Investigating British Archaeology’.
