Deep time in monastic landscapes

Suggested period: MEDIEVAL

In Lincolnshire, the monasteries of the Witham valley seem to be just the final link in a chain of ritual significance (evidenced by the deposition of objects) that reaches back to the Bronze Age. Work is now starting at Strata Florida in mid Wales to see if this pattern is replicated elsewhere. Is the pattern of prehistoric object loss different in the vicinity of medieval monastic landscapes? What is the relationship between monastery sites and earlier sacred landscapes?
