Professor Chris Dyer, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Leicester, will be presenting: “Pinbury in Duntisbourne Rouse: When is a village not a village?”
How do we find a lost village and investigate its form and plan? Why is it an advantage to use both archaeological and written sources? How did the village begin and how did it connect with it early medieval, Roman and prehistoric predecessors? How and why was the village abandoned? Studying one village can extend our understanding of the development of the countryside in general and over a long period.
