The part of the East Midlands studied – Leicestershire . The influence of migration on the evolution of early medieval fenland culture remains enigmatic.
The part of the East Midlands studied – Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland – contained twenty towns. Benchmarks’ for placing towns in the hierarchy are explored, including population, topography, social structure, occupational diversity, marketing and migratory networks, administration, and civic and material culture.

The Early Middle Ages are also sometimes referred to as Late Antiquity. Anyone studying a smaller geographical area, such as Great Britain or the Iberian Peninsula, will much more easily discover start- and end-dates for the era. This time period is usually viewed as beginning in the third century and stretching to the seventh century, and sometimes as late as the eighth. Some scholars see Late Antiquity as distinct and separate from both the Ancient world and the Medieval one; others see it as a bridge between the two where significant factors from both eras overlap. The High Medieval Era is the period of time that seems to typify the Middle Ages best.
