The enduring landscape of medieval cathedral construction

UGPS Working Paper Series 2014-003, Umeå University, 2014.

This paper examines the great building phase of the Anglo-Normans in England from an environmental rather than the more common architectural standpoint. THe construction of massive cathedrals, modern monasteries, and ubiquitous parish churches resulted in environmental consequences for medieval England after the conquest. Extracting construction resources sculpted enduring marks on both the medieval and modern landscape of England.
