EMAS Day School

The Landscape of Anglo-Saxon England

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

The landscape of modern England has been shaped by our Anglo-Saxon past. The towns and villages, woods, forests and fields of today have all been influenced by our Anglo-Saxon ancestors.

This day school looks at how recent research has increased our knowledge of the interaction between the Anglo-Saxons and their landscape, and how they exploited the resources of their environment.

The main points to be covered will be:

The landscape at the time of the settlement
The influence of the church on the landscape
Anglo-Saxon charters
Place-names in the landscape
The landscape before the Norman Conquest

People interested in this day school may also be interested in the EMAS field trip on Saturday, 4 November which examines the charter bounds of Godmersham in Kent.
