From the Publisher
While the art and craftsmanship of the Anglo–Saxons is much admired, the background to this superb work is little understood. Kevin Leahy—a trained craftsman and archaeologist—looks at how the artifacts were made: at the materials, the tools and techniques that were used. His survey ranges from casting a brooch to making a sword, from pottery and weaving to woodworking and building.
Kevin Leahy is Principal Keeper, Archaeology and Natural Science, North Lincolnshire Museum.
