This book is an outcome of the British archaeological association conference on Medieval Art, architecture and archaeology in King's Lynn and the Fens in 2005. It focuses particularly on the themes of landscapes and parish churches, with a contrast between the great aristocratic and monastic sites.
The fourteen papers collected in this volume explore the medieval art, architecture and archaeology of King's Lynn and the Fens. They arise out of the Association's 2005 conference, and reflect its concern to engage with a broad range of monuments and themes, rather than focusing on a single major building.
