Lincoln Connections - A tribute to Dennis Mills

Eds. Shirley Brook, Andrew Walker and Rob Wheeler. Society of Lincolnshire Heritage and Archaeology

Dennis Mills, the son of a gardener who grew up in the estate village at Winthrope, near Newark then at Canwick, outside Lincoln. Read geography in Nottingham and after learning Russian during his National Service returned to Nottingham as a Demonstrator and Temporary Assistant Lecturer.  Eventually becoming Senior Lecturer for the Open University.  He is best known in his field of work regarding the extension of the open/closed classification of English villages in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.  He wrote extensively on Canwick and the Sibthorp family.

This book is a collection of contributions from a variety of authors influenced by Dennis Mills work.  Wherever possible they have used Lincolnshire case studies, giving the book topographical cohesion across a diversity of topics.  It will appeal to readers with interests varying from early archaeological recording of sewer trenches, through nineteenth century farm buildings, to the way that history influences modern planning decisions.
