This review is from: Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the Latin East (Hardcover)
The archaeology of the crusades is a surprisingly under-researched topic, largely owing to the political and cultural difficulties in assessing much of the material outside Israel. This text (now 15 years old) is a rather authoritative overview of the topic.
If one is studying Levantine castles, however, as I was - there isn't a great deal of material here one couldn't find elsewhere.
A fully updated edition would be a useful undertaking for the author.
