Top Customer Reviews
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.

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
