(p.151) 8 Reconstructing early medieval territorial arrangements
Making Sense of an Historic Landscape

Stephen Rippon

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how early medieval territorial arrangements can be reconstructed using a wide range of documentary, place-name, and archaeological evidence including the physical fabric of the historic landscape. Various categories of evidence can be mapped out via a traditional approach of transcribing sets of information onto sheets of tracing-paper laid over a base map, with separate sheets for each category of evidence, but it is best done on a computer using a GIS or graphics package, which also contains a series of layers, albeit digital, onto which data can be transcribed.

Keywords:   landscape character, historic landscapes, early medieval territorial arrangements
