I bought this book because I needed to research a particular aspect of Medieval Industry and I immediately found myself distracted by the sheer volume of accessible information on a wide variety of subjects.

Each chapter covers a different craft or industry; they are written by different authors, each one knowledgable in their own area. Scholarly yet easy to read, it's the sort of book that I dip into when a question crops up and so far I've always found the answer - plus more information. The book is packed with fascinating facts as well as giving a solid background into the Medieval history of certain industries.

A good book for wide-ranging research into the nitty - and sometimes literally gritty - side of life in medieval England.

HASH(0x8ba7c408) out of 5 stars Fantastic resource book 20 Nov. 2012
By Linda Thompson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this to be a fantastic resource book on Medieval Industries. I do several
medieval crafts and this book contains them all. Though not an actual craft book,
it does contain the historical information of these industries. Each chapter is done
by a different author, an expert in each field and containing many photos and diagrams
of extant objects. I'd been looking for such a book for some time and I can heartily
recommend this book for those interested medieval crafts
