Medieval Settlement Research Group

MSRG is a multi-disciplinary group that facilitates collaboration between archaeologists, historians, geographers and other interested parties dedicated to developing understanding of settlement between the fifth and sixteenth centuries AD.

The Medieval Settlement Research Group (MSRG) was founded in November 1986 from an amalgamation of two well-established organisations, the Moated Sites Research Group and the Medieval Village Research Group. It is a long-established, widely recognised and open multi-disciplinary research group that facilitates collaboration between archaeologists, geographers, historians and other cognate disciplines. The Group is dedicated to developing knowledge and advancing understanding of rural settlements and their associated landscapes between the fifth and the sixteenth centuries. Although the Group’s interest is concentrated on British and Irish rural settlements and landscapes, it actively encourages wider chronological and pan-European perspectives.
