About the Journal

Medieval Settlement Research (MSR) is an internationally recognised interdisciplinary journal that publishes peer-reviewed research papers, short reports, book reviews and an annual bibliography. Its core focus is medieval settlement and landscape in the UK and Ireland from the 5th to the 16th centuries AD, but it also actively encourages wider pan-European perspectives.

Medieval Settlement Research therefore welcomes research that helps us to improve our understanding of medieval settlements and landscapes across Britain, Ireland and Europe, from the level of individual sites to the international scale. The journal is published annually, in full colour, on A4 format to allow for large, detailed and high-quality illustrations.

Open access
