Title:Transhumance to Farmstead: Landscape and the Medieval Resettlement of Dartmoor
Originator:Catlin, K.
Summary:During the 10th and 11th centuries, Dartmoor was permanently resettled by peasants and tenant farmers. This paper explores how traditional explanations for this resettlement ‐ environmental change and population pressure ‐ are insufficient to understand the processes and consequences of medieval settlement. Focus on Houndtor and Okehampton Park settlements.
