Abstract

Today, there is probably more archaeological research taking place in the medieval towns and cities of England than at any time in the past. The extent of this work, and the academic value of its results, are however perhaps not as widely appreciated as they might be. This session aims to provide an overview of recent activities and their relevance for wider issues of medieval English urbanism.
