Religion and Ritual post-AD410

Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide (which complements that covering Religion and Ritual pre-AD 410) offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument associated with religion in all its guises following the formal end of the Roman period in AD410, which are deemed to have national importance, and for which scheduling may therefore be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to explain these monument types, and to introduce the designation approaches employed, considering how these might be used when selecting candidates for designation.

There is inevitably some overlap with the Places of Worship listing selection guide, as many archaeological sites of a religious nature may also include standing buildings. This guide concentrates on those sites which are likely to be appropriately managed through scheduling.
