Abstract:
Volume presenting papers resulting from a five-year programme of detailed field study of deserted rural settlements throughout Wales. The project was set up to increase the level of understanding of rural settlement in Wales, and was also prompted by the sites' recognised vulnerability to destruction, and in order to create a basis upon which future management and protection strategies could be built. Work focused primarily, though not exclusively, on upland landscapes where field evidence is best preserved, and the site evaluations provide the most complete assessment of surviving remains in those areas to date. Following an introductory chapter, the main body of the volume divided into three parts: regional examinations, general themes, and conclusions and future developments. Papers explore settlement morphology, monastic upland exploitation, medieval and post-medieval settlement development and change, vernacular building traditions, regional variations and national characteristics, and environmental evidence. Includes Welsh, German and French summaries, and

Abstract
Kathryn Roberts
1 - 9
outlines previous survey and research work, and the development, objectives and methodology of the project
Robert J Silvester
13 - 39
synthesis of settlement morphology throughout an area encompassing diverse topographical units which, across time, have variable local historical contexts
Martin Locock
41 - 60
including a reconsideration of the nature of occupation on Gelligaer Common and discussion of the evidence for monastic upland exploitation
David Longley
61 - 82
the author analyses and interprets archaeological field evidence relative to historical evidence for medieval townships in Gwynedd, producing results which indicate how settlement developed across the region in social and functional terms
Paul Sambrook
83 - 109
the author draws extensively on supporting documentary and cartographic evidence to produce a review of the form and purpose of lluestau in seventeenth-century Ceredigion
George Smith
David Thompson
113 - 132
the authors outline the challenges faced when excavating deserted settlement sites, and demonstrate how limited but targeted intervention can produce positive outcomes. The excavations demonstrate the role that environmental evidence can play in identifying the function and date of sites
Astrid E Caseldine
133 - 153
summary outlining both the potential and limitations of techniques employed in palaeoenvironmental studies, and demonstrates how they can be used to open up new avenues of investigation
Judith Alfrey
155 - 168
the author presents an architectural historian's view, and argues the case for closer collaboration between archaeologists, historians and architectural historians, particularly in respect of exploring the origins of vernacular building traditions
Kathryn Roberts
171 - 186
the author presents a digest of the principal findings of the regional and thematic studies, and considers what has been accomplished
Kathryn Roberts
187 - 191
the author looks at the ways in which the data is now being used by organisations such as Cadw to manage and conserve both individual sites and the wider historic landscape
David Austin
193 - 205
the findings are placed within a broader context, and an analysis presented of what archaeologists could or should aim to achieve in the future
