By the late 12th century, there is clear historical and archaeological evidence for the regional and national importance of Clarendon Park. For the early medieval period, a diverse range of source materials must be employed to elucidate the character of the landscape both in and around the park. As this lecture will demonstrate, far from being in a ‘dark age’, this part of central Wessex entertained a dense settlement pattern, was replete with interesting characters and enjoyed sophisticated levels of land management.
