"Abbeys and Priories examines the ways in which medieval monasteries have been studied, what they comprised and how they can be interpreted, using historical, art historical and archaeological sources. Illustrated throughout, the book shows how the available evidence can be used to understand the development of monasteries through time. It provides a general introduction to the subject that can serve as a model for further research, as well as showing how we have come to our present level of knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.
