More About the Author

John Schofield is now retired from the Museum of London, and is an archaeologist writing various books and reports. He is archaeologist for St Paul's Cathedral, London, and has prpoduced a large report 'St Paul's Cathedral before Wren', published by English Heritage in 2011. Also in 2011 he published 'London 1100-1600' for Equinox Press, in the series Archaeology of Medieval Europe, of which he is series editor. This book was awarded the London Archaeological Prize for the best archaeological publication in London in the years 2011-12, on 16 November 2012.

John was an archaeologist at the Museum of London from 1974 to 1998, and as such was instrumental in initiating the policy of 'developer funding' which persuaded every developer in London to pay for the necessary archaeological work on each and every development site, which started in London in 1978. This became national policy in 1990.

Product Description

Review

'This is an important and useful book. And, crucially it's a good read.'
British Archaeology

'John Schofield snythesises a huge volume of archaeology to produce this coherent account packed with detail and fascinating visual evidence, and much enlivened by the author's own observations -- for example, on exotic imported food and whether Londoners had different diets from other parts of England, or on the impact of communities of 'aliens' on the city, including Jewish financiers, and Italian, French and Spanish merchants, or on the effect of London on its hinterland.'
Salon

'His detailed knowledge of projects both famous and unsung paints a potent picture of London between 1100 and 1600.'
Current Archaeology

'..an expert account.. the book is well designed, expertly illustrated and manages to bridge the gap between an accessible and popular account, with a scholarly framework with full references and an extensive bibliography. This is a book that readers can turn to again and again in order to refresh their knowledge of the archaeology of this medieval metropolis'
