Charles Cleland (2001: 2) argues that historical archaeology has become focussed too much on event based archaeology and not on wider cultural questions. This book has taken up this challenge and has sought, not just to explain the visible remains on the landscape - the buildings of the Parkside Lunatic Asylum and the New Norfolk Hospital for the Insane, but to understand both the forces at work within society shaping these buildings and what life was like within them for the unvoiced.
