Abstract

This session will present the archeological analysis of Meaux Abbey in new light, with a re-examination of evidence from the chronicle as it relates to the buildings, as well as reconstruction of the plan of the abbey church and cloister arcade from remaining architectural fragments. The third paper will examine the distinctive industrial landscapes of Fountains, Rievaulx, and Byland where property was acquired piece-meal in detached blocks, each with a particular purpose such as coal, iron, or resources for making charcoal, and the routes that were acquired to link them.
