Just Published New Winchelsea - A Medieval Port Town 

Published and distributed by Heritage Marketing and Publications Ltd - Field
Archaeology Unit Monograph No. 2, Institute of Archaeology, University
College London.

Summary

The port town of Winchelsea is mentioned in most books which discuss
medieval England, but perhaps inevitably, given the nature of the published
literature, the references mainly concentrate on the town as a member of the
Cinque Ports and on its planned grid system of streets laid out under orders
of Edward I in the late 13th century. The town rarely appears amongst the
lists of significant medieval towns and ports, unless the ranking is based
upon participation in the maritime activities of the medieval realm. The
implication is that Winchelsea was just another small medieval port catering
to local needs. However, in the light of recent research our views of the
town's role in history need to be reconsidered. The various data presented
within the pages of this monograph suggest that Winchelsea may have been
considerably larger and more influential during the 13th and 14th centuries
than is usually considered to be the case.
