Product Description

Review

"Author Paul Hindle presents a straightforward dissertation on the network of roads and paths throughout medieval England... In determining where the medieval roads led, Hindle becomes a sort of cartographic sleuth, turning to a number of resources available to the modern scholar... The book is illustrated throughout with photographs, both aerial and ground level, as well as an assortment of graphs and maps...it successfully brings to light its chosen subject." -Barb Allshouse, "Renaissance Magazine" (August 2009)

About the Author

Dr. Paul Hindle is Honorary Secretary of the Manchester Geographical Society. His books include: "Roads and Tracks of the Lake District," "Maps for Historians," and "Roads and Tracks for Historians." He is also the author of "Medieval Town Plans" in the Shire Archaeology series.

Book arrived in excellent condition. It is a slim book but contains many photographs, maps and diagrams making it an excellent accompaniment to the study of this subject.There is a good reproduction of the early Paris map of Great Britain and explains and gives examples of itineraries of journeys which was how we gain information of medieval journeys since they did not have formal road maps. The text is in readable, bite-sized chunks and all information is referenced.Is more informative than a book three times its size.

I was looking for a simple easy to read book to tell me about the road development during this period of history. I found this and it the job very well. There will be more comprehensive books, but for a quick easy read with good information you can't go wrong.

I found this book to be a page turner! I expected it might be a bit of a dull read if i'm honest, but i couldn't be more wrong. My only complaint is its very short. It is a book which covers the basics and may well pique ones interest to do further research.

The arrival date was way over time. It could have been due to the transport here in Spain, it can occur.
Its a really informative little book, fun to read and also fits into a decent sized pocket. A Must have for the curious and the ramblers, a good idea to introduce ones children to; to see and imagine how our forefathers daily life with transport evolved. A super job done on this little book.Congratulations to the author

Whilst a limited subject as the title sugests, I find that when combined with other individual subjects, they all knit together into giving one an overall general understanding of this wide area called Archaeology.

Whilst I would never be able to attain an expert status, it will all go together to give me an enjoyable insight into the subject.

It is because of this, I feel that this book has it's important place in my personal library.
