Abstract and Keywords
This overview traces early engagements with the medieval past in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the impact of the Landscape Movement in gardens, Romanticism in poetry and fiction, the Picturesque in painting, and particularly the Gothic Revival in architecture. It discusses the seeds of later medieval archaeology in the twentieth century, framed by war and new ideals of a common national heritage, and picks out the influential people, projects, and institutions that have shaped the subject.
