Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the appealing aspects of the A-S period to me is that a lot of the technology is simple enough that I can understand it, when it is clearly explained. Leahy's book does a good job of explaining (with diagrams as well as words) how a pole-lathe, for instance works. His description and depiction of a warp-weighted loom left me saying "I could operate one of those! I see how it works."
The bit about tablet weaving even inspired me to try it. Leahy's book is not a how-to primer in any of the crafts, but again I could see enough to understand the priciple. I found a web-site that give some simple instructions, made myself a set of "tablets" out of a Cheerios box, and got the thing to work!

Format: Paperback
Of most of the books purchased to aid in Dark Age re-enactment, this one has proven to be the most valuable, the most useful, and most reliable. Clear illustrations, a diverse range of topics and a transparent writing style has made this title probably the most thumbed reference in a stable of well over a dozen regularly used references. Even for those who do not partake in re-enactment, "Anglo-Saxon Crafts" is a fascinating glimpse into the society that provided the roots of modern western civilisation.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best resources for Anglo-Saxon Crafts on the market. There are numerous subjects and some outstanding photos of archelogocial finds. For anyone interested in Dark Age re-enactment this book is a 'must have'. It is well written, easy to read, and the photos are detailed and clear.
