Death in the Town.

Speaker: Professor David Stocker and Dr Paul Everson

A study, bringing together previous and some new published work, regarding what can be said about the establishment of urban churches, and therefore about urbanism more generally in the 10th-12th centuries, using the large body of new information made available through the cataloguing of the AHRC-funded Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture Project. Amongst other considerations, they argue that this alternative environment and legal background imposed unusual relationships on such monastic houses, both with their patrons and with the animals of the Chase.
