Abstract :
Reports on the variety of architectural and archaeological studies at the former Cistercian monastery of Buckland Abbey at Buckland Monachorum. Architectural analysis permits reconstruction drawings of the uncommon layout of the 13th-15th c. monastery with cloisters to the north and a great barn close to the east end of the church. Excavations located the junction of the north transept and east cloister wall foundations, and possible evidence for a porch outside the west door. Four medieval skeletons from a cemetery were found. A complex history of building alterations ranging from the 14th-18th c. was uncovered. A 14th c. stable block was altered in the 16th c. into high quality domestic accommodation, which reverted to farm usage in the 18th-20th cs. Also discovered was a 13th c. long house or workshop. Building and conservation work by the agronomist William Marshall was identified. ;
