Welcome to the blog of the Feeding Anglo-Saxon England project (‘FeedSax’ for short).
This pioneering new archaeological research project takes a fresh new approach to an age-old question. How did farming practices change in early medieval England? And in particular, how, when, where and why did open field systems emerge?
The project is funded by the European Research Council and will run for four years (2017-2021) across two universities. The University of Leicester team will specialize in zooarchaeological research, while at the University of Oxford we will focus on settlements, archaeobotany, palynology and isotopes.
