Keith Lilley, Chris Lloyd and Steve Trick, 2005
Queen's University Belfast

This resource derives from the Mapping the medieval urban landscape research project which began in 2003 with two years funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Using mapping as a medium, the project examined how urban landscapes were shaped in the middle ages, the project and further an understanding of the forms and formation of medieval towns. It is the first project to have used spatial technologies - Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) - as a basis for mapping and analysing medieval urban landscapes. The project team was Dr Keith Lilley (director), Dr Chris Lloyd (co-director), and Dr Steven Trick (researcher) and the research was conducted at Queen's University Belfast.
