Abstract

[From the introduction:]
The purpose of this dissertation is to determine whether landscape was a significant factor in the depopulation and desertion of medieval villages within the East Riding of Yorkshire.
In a previous study on the subject, the author determined that the majority of desertions within the East Riding of Yorkshire were due to the enclosure of common land (Coulson, 2019). This study aims to view deserted medieval villages from a landscape-oriented perspective. This paper will analyse how significant the landscape was in the depopulation of the villages of the East Riding and will compare and contrast different theories and factors which led to the desertion of these once bustling villages.
