A number of archaeological reports on excavated sites in Jerusalem and its surroundings refer to the Persian conquest as the cause for the destruction or abandonment of churches and monasteries. However, a careful analysis of excavation reports of selected sites shows that in none of them is there conclusive archaeological evidence for early seventh-century destruction, or for abandonment at the end of Continuity of the Conquest Byzantine period.

Perhaps so, but any mere resemblance between the Carolingian and Norman practice of rulership is insufficient to establish conclusively that the latter was deliberately modelled on the former in a self-reflective manner, which is the assumption underlying the entire project. ' Judith Evans and Richard Milne, 'Duke of Westminster Dies', Financial Times, 10 August 2016, accessed at on 11 November 2016.

Sections on Norman forest law, on literary responses to the death of William Rufus and on forest imagery in the lais of Marie de France all contain fascinating and thoughtful insights.

Thanks to the invasion, England developed closer ties with France, opening new trade routes and markets, but also bringing new problems. How can a military raid be reflected in the archaeological finds, and to what extent it is reflected in long-term processes?

Wendy Hoofnagle forces us to reconceptualize what we think we know about Englishness, and indeed England itself, in the central Middle Ages.

Moreover, most of their villas,bayhs and temples, their impressive network of roads, and the cities they founded, including Londinium, were soon destroyed or fell into disrepair. Chapter 1 pursues the intriguing notion of 'Conversion Politics'. and was designed to protect game and their habitats for royal hunting.

Both the actions of importing a new aristocracy and the building of new churches were done to suit the aspirations of the Norman elite within England and were signs of Norman domination.

The late pre-colonial, early colonial and present-day characteristics of this industry are explored in order to come to a renewed understanding of its long-term development. After all, any incident claiming the description must have far-reaching consequences for the organisation of the country, its government, laws and institutions, and its economy. This work presents insights into the process of cultural continuity and change in the indigenous world by focusing on pottery technology in the Nahua Aztec region of Central Mexico.

8 n late Aztec plate based on Cervantes and Fournier 1995:Fig. Afterwards, religion seemed to flourish and William of Malmesbury was convinced that 'The standard of religion, dead everywhere in England, has been raised by their arrival'. With that in mind Hoofnagle's The Continuity of Continuity of the Conquest Conquest deserves to take its place alongside other studies of Norman cultural and political identity, though with the proviso that its successes lie more at the level of detailed readings of key texts, rather than in the persuasiveness of its central thematic contentions.

Normans taking over these two positions were particularly important as York was the religious centre of the North and Canterbury Continuity of the Conquest religious centre of the whole country. She argues that the aggregate of historical and literary ideals that developed about Charlemagne after his death influenced certain aspects of the Normans' approach to ruling, including a program of conversion through "allurement," political domination through symbolic architecture and propaganda, and the creation of a sense of the royal forest as an extension of the royal court.

They did this in many ways. In short, what the chapter offers is a series of original and perceptive but loosely related studies which struggle to cohere into a persuasive overall argument. The legislative elite, immersed in their own legal order, generally sought to bring society into line with its own deeply rooted ideals, and their reforms thus tended to work with the grain of existing legal culture.
