Towns have been a place of evolution and development throughout British history, growing from royal 'wics' between the seventh and ninth centuries to characteristic Viking towns in the later ninth and early tenth centuries, then changing following the Norman Conquest in 1066. Using archaeological, topographical and documentary material, this book provides an extensive and detailed insight into recent ideas about the developments of towns in England in the first half millennium to AD 1140.
