MonArch brings together a multi-disciplinary team to focus on the larger role of monasteries in medieval and early modern France.  Work has been conducted, since 1982, at three sites: Saint-Jean-des-Vignes, Bourgfontaine and Notre Dame d’Ourscamp.  Excavations continue at the medieval charterhouse of Bourgfontaine in northern France, focusing on the 14th c. Great Cloister and the excavation of a monastic cell.
