Editorial Reviews

Review

It is possible, using this catalogue of finds, to consider new insights into life in medieval Britain during this period and, as such, this volume is ideal for anyone with an academic interest in the period historically or archaeologically. (...) It is a fascinating insight into a very small but significant period of British history and a volume which as part of a wider series nonetheless stands well on its own as an individual work of reference. REFERENCE REVIEWS This second edition is testament to the thorough research that underpinned the original. MEDIEVAL ARCHAEOLOGY Illustrates and explains an astounding diversity of excavated furnishings and artefacts from medieval London homes. (...) It is possible, using this catalogue of finds, to consider new insights into life in medieval Britain during this period and, as such, this volume is ideal for anyone with an academic interest in the period historically or archaeologically. REFERENCE REVIEWSThese finds give us a marvellous picture of London life in the later middle ages. (...) For historians and archaeologists alike, this catalogue provides a wealth of primary material for further analysis. The introductory essays and commentaries on individual categories and pieces are excellent. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW (reviewed together with 'Pilgrim Souvenirs') Republication of two volumes from the essential Medieval Finds from Excavations in London series, both from 1998, is very welcome. Print quality is excellent, and Boydell has hardbacked them, wise for reference books guaranteed a long life. BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGY --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm writing a novel, set in medieval England, and this book was a marvelous source of technical information. The rating would have been a full five stars had this book been a little less technical. But the good news: when I'm done, I'm sharing it with a man who does authentic metalwork, so it will never just sit on a shelf, gathering dust.
