Most English and Welsh towns were founded or grew rapidly in the later medieval period, in particular between the mid twelfth and early fourteenth centuries. This book begins by giving a brief outline of the great growth in the number and size of towns and outlines the archaeological, documentary and cartographic evidence that is available. It then goes on to relate that evidence to surviving and lost features in the townscape, with the aim of providing enough background material for the reader to be able to see why, when, where and how any medieval town grew. Particular topics covered include town sites, their overall layout, street patterns, defences (castles, walls and gates), markets, trades, churches, chapels, monasteries, suburbs, property boundaries and houses. Above all, this is a practical guide to the study of medieval town plans.… (mais)

Paul Hindle's slim volume Medieval Town Plans (64 pp. including index) is a short but useful example of how history, geography and archaeology can (and should) be used together. His goal is to consider the growth of the medieval town in conjunction with economic growth and trade. He contends that while early settlements grew up around fortified areas, later towns tended to grow out of market areas instead of defensive sites.

Next, he illuminates strategies to chart how towns grew, which include not only the common sources used by historians (charters and the like) but also maps, archaeological reports, and (probably most commonly overlooked by historians) the town itself -- pointing out features that most often are original and less likely to have changed or moved. He then considers the major features of medieval towns, such as markets, churches and walls, and shows how to trace them in relation to other changes.

The large number of clear reproductions of town plans and maps and photographs are possibly the best feature; he takes care to illustrate every step of his method with good examples. The text is short but easily readable. Hindle gives a clear and very practical introduction to a toolset useful to anyone interested in medieval urban history.
