Rievaulx Abbey : update on a long-term landscape conversation.

Horsfield, F. (2016) 'Rievaulx Abbey : update on a long-term landscape conversation.', Teesside Archaeological Society bulletin., 20 . pp. 22-24.

Rievaulx Abbey has been a part of the North Yorkshire landscape for nearly 900 years. The name conjures images of the evocatively ruinous buildings at the heart of the former Cistercian monastery north of Helmsley. The abbey's history is more complex than that of its monastic phase, however, although it is this phase which is most well-known.
