St Mary's, Broughton, Lincolnshire: A Thegnly Tower—Nave in the Late Anglo-Saxon Landscape

St Mary's, Broughton, Lincolnshire: A Thegnly Tower—Nave in the Late Anglo-Saxon Landscape St Mary's Church, Broughton, Lincolnshire, incorporates an eleventh-century tower-nave church. A description of the tower was carried out in 2007 as part of an MA dissertation at the University of York. It is reproduced here, together with a consideration of the tower's significance as a high-status secular, as well as ecclesiastical, structure in the landscape of Late Anglo-Saxon Lindsey. It is concluded that the tower acted as the chapel of a thegn and may have reinforced his authority over the adjacent hundredal meeting-place. A gazetteer of other Anglo-Saxon and Norman tower-naves forms an appendix. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archaeological Journal Taylor & Francis

Abstract

St Mary's Church, Broughton, Lincolnshire, incorporates an eleventh-century tower-nave church. A description of the tower was carried out in 2007 as part of an MA dissertation at the University of York. It is reproduced here, together with a consideration of the tower's significance as a high-status secular, as well as ecclesiastical, structure in the landscape of Late Anglo-Saxon Lindsey. It is concluded that the tower acted as the chapel of a thegn and may have reinforced his authority over the adjacent hundredal meeting-place. A gazetteer of other Anglo-Saxon and Norman tower-naves forms an appendix.
