Contributors identified only by name explore the dynamic relationship between the landscape, acts of faith, and their artefactual manifestation in a district on the east coast of England. Encompassing the current view that landscape has both natural and cultural dimensions, they consider such aspects as religion in Roman Norfolk through recent metal-detector finds, paganism in Early-Anglo-Saxon East Anglia, iconography and craft in glass painting 1250-1540, provinciality and the Victorians in 19th-century church design, Christian rallies and war memorials of early-20th-century Norfolk, and sacred sites and blessed objects today.
