Anglo-Saxon monastic landscapes: a reconstruction from Lyminge, Kent

The project's key objective is to pioneer a holistic approach to the archaeological examination of the site of a documented double monastery (a mixed-sex community presided over by a royal abbess) founded in the 7th century. To relate the core buildings of early medieval monastic communities to their wider landscape context, this project will generate a high-resolution reconstruction of the physical organisation and material practices of Lyminge's documented monastic community, tracked through space and time from the 6th to the 9th century.
