Editorial Reviews


A satisfying and enlightening book.(...)The seemingly straightforward matter of bridges falling down involves a complex mix of changing concepts of royal power, feudal relationships, the evolving need for communication and transportation, and the selfish urges of human nature. LAW AND HISTORY REVIEWRefreshingly original. NORTHERN HISTORYWe should gratefully salute his boldness in proposing a model for the development of bridgework from written sources and for encouraging us to explore its limitations. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEWAn important contribution to our understanding of the development of the English laws relating to bridge building and maintenance from Anglo-Saxon times to the final decades of the fourteenth century. Provides some fascinating insights into the very different approaches to governance of the Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman kings. (...) An interesting and informative book. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEWThe issues raised are important in the context of the subject, and their larger significance is evident. The evidence is well marshalled and problems with it are fully discussed both in the text and in the extensive notes. The arguments are cogent and persuasive. The writing is clear, uncluttered, and occasionally funny. All in all, this was a joy to read. H-NET BOOK REVIEW
