Prof. Helena Hamerow (University of Oxford): Feeding Anglo-Saxon England: The Bioarchaeology of an Agricultural Revolution

The medieval ‘agricultural revolution’ saw the spread of open-field cereal farming across much of Europe and is regarded as one of the transformative changes of the Middle Ages. In England there is a long-standing debate regarding the origins of open field farming and its impact on the country’s social geography and political economy. The lecture will provide an overview of a new project, funded by the ERC, which is using plant macrofossils, animal bones, and pollen, together with settlement archaeology, to generate, for the first time, direct evidence for the conditions in which medieval crops were grown.
