Mapping the Medieval City: Space, Place and Identity in Chester c 1200 – 1600

By Catherine Clarke. University of Wales Press 2011.

This ground-breaking volume brings together contributions from scholars across a range of disciplines (including literary studies, history, geography and archaeology) to investigate questions of space, place and identity in the medieval city. Using Chester as a case study ? with attention to its location on the border between England and Wales, its rich multilingual culture and surviving material fabric? the essays seek to recover the experience and understanding of the urban space by individuals and groups within the medieval city, and to offer new readings from the vantage point of twenty-first century disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.
