Críticas: This book, which will appeal to both students and scholars alike, fills a gap in the subject dealing as it does with the full range of structures to be found in the medieval countryside. It reveals the complexity and diversity of England's farming landscapes, urban settlements and religious and defensive buildings. It provides an up-to-date and lively discussion of the development of the medieval landscape from the pre-Conquest period to the Reformation and will swiftly become a standard text for those interested in the subject. -- Dr Robert Liddiard, Senior Lecturer, School of History, University of East Anglia, UK Through skilful use of historical documents and context, Graeme White brings together the people and monuments of medieval England. Through this 500 year period of dramatic social, religious, political and military change, the narrative allows the reader to understand impact of new philosophies and pragmatic responses to circumstance on the physical fabric of the landscape of the day. This book is essential reading for historians and archaeologists alike. -- Stewart Ainsworth, Senior Investigator, English Heritage Writing in a clear and engaging style that assumes no prior knowledge and yet never over simplifies, Graeme stalks the evidence that explains the character of the landscapes of farming, hunting, rural settlement, towns and trade, religion and fortification, Above all he asks over and again who was responsible for what we now see? He does not assume, as many landscape historians seem to have done, that the landscape just evolves: somebody, somewhere took decisions. The Society of Antiquaries of London Online Newsletter Discussion of fieldscapes, cultivation strips, open fields and other arrangements quickly opens up what for this reader is the lasting impression from the book overall, that is the great diversity of arrangements and practice across the country. Such is the wealth of detailed place-based and thematic studies now available and which the author brings into play (the twenty-three-page bibliography is a fine reference for anyone wishing to follow up some case studies), that broad generalising models of previous eras of scholarship are well superseded and the significance of immediate and local circumstances well recognised. -- Colm O'Brien Landscape History A clear account of what students of the subject have discovered, analysed, written and disagreed about in the last few years ... the book is a nice record of the state of medieval landscape history in 2012 and thus of value as an introductory work ... Recommended reading. -- Christopher Taylor The Local Historian A well-written and engaging text which serves as an excellent introduction to its subject. -- Jeremy Lake, English Heritage, Swindon Medieval Archaeology Refreshing and informative ... The book brings new insights to well-trodden debates, which are succinctly relayed ... [A]n expertly-informed introductory text. -- Amanda Richardson, University of Chichester Southern History The text is fluent and very readable, drawing from disparate works by historians, archaeologists and geographers, and noting alternative views as well as consensus. It is supported by a helpful index. -- James Bond The Antiquaries Journal This book is a clearly written and highly accessible survey of the English medieval landscape which covers a range of topics including farming practices, settlement patterns, the development of towns and the role of religion ... Throughout the book economic history is a useful reference point, and this is a factor in the use of the landscape and a measure of the success of farming and other activities. This book is accessibly and engagingly written, thoroughly referenced with an extensive bibliography, and forms an excellent gateway into the subject. -- Elizabeth Stewart, National Museums Liverpool, UK Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire Vol. 163
