Resisting boundaries: landscape and memory in early modern England

Topic areas


In 16 and 17 century England, ordinary people fought back against rent increases and land enclosures to preserve their connection to the land they lived and worked on.

Everyday people held strong ties to the land they inherited from their ancestors, with shared memories, customs and traditions that bound them to their community. Using cartographic and textual evidence held at The National Archives, including witness statements from legal disputes, Professor Andy Wood (Durham University) will explore how people resisted ambitious lords to protect their landscape and heritage.

This talk is part of The National Archives' Summer Lecture Series exploring the theme 'Mapping and movement: people, place and power', which is generously sponsored by the Friends of The National Archives and supported by the Royal Historical Society.
