It is our great pleasure to announce the publication of a major new volume, edited by Gabor Thomas and Alexandra Knox, that should be of interest to those studying early medieval places of power. Based on the proceedings of an international conference held in Canterbury in 2015, the volume provides a range of archaeological and historical perspectives on the general theme of monasticism in early medieval north-west Europe together with the latest appraisal of the archaeology from Lyminge itself, including select studies of its rich material culture and environmental assemblages.
The volume is published as part of the Anglo-Saxon Studies in Archaeology and History series and can be ordered through Oxbow: http://www.oxbowbooks.com/oxbow/anglo-saxon-studies-in-archaeology-and-history.html.
