Abstract:
This study is based on part of a University of Cambridge Ph D dissertation (1991). It is divided into four chapters, each with notes giving supporting references. Chapter one examines the different types of evidence that might be used to identify secular élite sites in the study area and puts forward various theoretical models of site identification. Chapter two examines the problems arising from attempts to identify secular sites and high-status sites, in particular the problems of defining such sites. Conclusions are drawn that it is possible to define and identify such sites. Chapter three attempts to test some of the theoretical models put forward in chapter one, and to apply other models to selected sites. Conclusions are drawn that the models are for the most part useful and accurate, although modifications to some of them are shown to be necessary. In the final chapter relevant models from those tested in the previous chapter are applied to hillfort and castle sites within the study area. The general conclusion is drawn that historical texts can be used to interpret archaeological evidence.
