A catalogue and re-evaluation of the Urnes style in England

Owen, Olwyan Anne (1979) A catalogue and re-evaluation of the Urnes style in England. Masters thesis, Durham University.



The first part contains a study of the methodological approaches used in the analysis of the Urnes style, and they are subsequently applied to the Urnes material in Scandinavia. The Scandinavian style is discussed in relation to the different objects and monuments on which it appears, and a dating is attempted. Against this background, in part two the English material is discussed, according to the medium in which it is executed, and an English version of the style is defined. The dating evidence for the style in England is presented, and the Urnes material in Ireland is compared with it. Part three contains a catalogue of all the Urnes material in England known at the present time.
