5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly and readable study with fascinating information, 6 May 2000

This review is from: A Second Handbook of Anglo-Saxon Food and Drink: Production and Distribution (Paperback)
Ann Hagen's second book has already been well reviewed in "Current Archaeology" and the Council for Independent Archaeology's Newsletter. Drawing on a wide range of archaeological and historical sources, it gives information on how foodstuffs and drinks - not forgetting tabooed foods - were produced and distributed in the 7 centuries from 400 to 1100 AD. Some of the topics: fermented drinks, the food supply when travelling, hospitality and charity, weights and measures and the food supply in towns. I started the book expecting to skim and scan, but soon found myself totally absorbed in the picture it builds up of everyday Anglo-Saxon life. Buy it. You will be as fascinated as I was.
