Ken Crowe (VCH Essex)

This paper presents findings from an Essex pilot project with wider potential.  Using Essex as the basis for this study, we shall illustrate how documentary and archaeological evidence can illuminate the process of dismantling the monasteries following the dissolution of 1536-40, and the re-use (or recycling) of monastic materials. Other related themes (to be touched on briefly) include the conversion of monastic buildings to other uses.
