Editorial Reviews

Review

'Mining in a Medieval Landscape is not just another 'local history', although it has much that will appeal to Devonians. It places the medieval royal mines in their context both nationally and internationally...' (Devon Archaeological Society) 'Not only is the book profoundly interesting and readable, it is well-illustrated and produced with a good index, an adequate glossary and an extensive bibliography. It is written to the highest academic standards ... It will be found to be a useful starting point for others wishing to study medieval mining. The book is an absolute 'must' for those interested in the West Country and will find a well-earned place on the bookshelves of anyone interested in this little-understood period and its integration with the wider local economy.' (Northern Mine Research Society) 'It is excellent value at GBP20 for the paperback and will be helpful to many other studies in the future.' (Landscape History) 'a fine example of how an interdisciplinary approach can be successfully employed to provide an insight into even the most seemingly uninformative landscape and illustrates clearly the benefits and rewards from adopting this type of approach. It will provide an invaluable reference for those embarking on projects to understand their own area and as such its influence will extend well beyond the silver industry and Devon.' (Journal of Medieval Archaeology, Vol. 54, Nov. 2010)
