Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Organisational units


Orchards were an important feature of the English landscape throughout medieval and post-medieval times yet they have received relatively little attention from historians. This article presents the results of recent research in the county of Norfolk. It briefly examines the place of orchards in local cultures and economies, their form and spatial organisation, and aspects of their location and distribution.
