Abstract:
Papers from the Leicester conference in 1978. H E Jean Le Patourel (1-18) stresses the need to think in European terms, and to study moats within estate patterns, comparing them with unmoated sites. Moated sites in Wales are given distributional and morphological consideration by C J Spurgeon (19-70); out of 128 sites three have received some excavation. For Ireland, T B Barry contributes a study (71-85) of the 'shifting frontier' in Counties Cork and Limerick, where a dense array of moats along the edges of the Anglo-Norman settlement betokens the needs of defence - even so, reasons for 14th century disuse need examination. Moated sites of the Champagne are taken by M Bur (87-101) and many common features found to underlie regional differences. Archaeological and documentary study of Rubercy castle (c 1150-1204) is provided by C Lorren (103-25). The moats of coastal Flanders are studied by F Verhaeghe (127-71), noting at least 323 examples of which eight have been sampled. A modified version of the English classification is used and a model for the creation and disuse of moats set up. Finally, C Hoek (173-96) discusses the 150 known sites in the County of Holland, assesses the eventual total at three times that, and studies the development of one example over time.
