November 3, 2020 10:00-11:00

About this Event

Early territories can be reconstructed from place-names, historical and archaeological evidence. The case study of Rendlesham allows us to map out the communities that existed in south-east Suffolk and perhaps the political relationships that existed between them. By plotting archaeological finds alongside techniques of retrogressive landscape analysis, we can reconstruct the evolution of an administrative landscape across the early medieval period, and place Rendlesham in its territorial context.
