This book has sought to explore the reasons why the landscape of southern Britain is so varied in its character. For England, the later seventh to early ninth centuries appear to have seen profound changes across the northern part of East Anglia, through the East Midlands, to the South‐West, with an intensification of agriculture and the nucleation of settlement in some areas. In areas such as the East Midlands there was a second stage in the development of villages—‐possibly associated with the laying out of two‐ and three‐field systems—‐while in northern East Anglia this approach towards managing the landscape did not develop to the same extent. This idea of managing the landscape around nucleated villages and communally‐ run open fields was clearly firmly established by the twelfth century when it was exported to the Anglo‐Norman lordships of southern Wales.
