Abstract/Summary

This chapter considers archaeological approaches to the study of later medieval monasticism in Scotland, providing a case study through which to explore the regional character of monasticism and the factors that influence archaeological scholarship today. It reflects on how the construction of archaeological knowledge is shaped by national identity and the contemporary social value that we place on medieval heritage. The chronological focus is on the transition to reformed monasticism in the twelfth century, when Scotland embraced reformed orders of monks, canons and nuns.
