Product description


This original, carefully researched and well-presented book makes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of the medieval world. (Christopher Dyer, Landscape History)

an impressive and beautifully written book with a remarkable chronological range... (N.P. Brooks, English Historical Review)

Remarkably the history and archaeology of medieval bridges is a completely neglected subject... This excellent volume now plugs the gap. (Tim Tatton-Brown, Medieval Archaeology)

This important book of how the network of bridges developed, their design, construction.., and the social and economic questions they raise... (Derek Renn, The Antiquaries Journal)

a very useful book on a very important topic.... A particularly attractive feature of the book is that he lays out its main thesis so clearly. (John Langdon, Agricultural History Review)

An important, thorough study of bridges from the Anglo-Saxon period to the Industrial Revolution. (Northern History)

This book will undoubtedly form the mainstay of all future studies on the subject (TLS)

To the outsider a study of medieval bridges is likely to smell of academic specialization. Yet David Harrison's book calmly avoids obscurity (TLS)

...a veritable treasure trove of information and essential source of reference for anyone interested in pre-modern transport. (Stephen Epstein, Journal of Transport History, Third Series, Vol. 28, No. 1)

one of the best books I have read for a long time. (Current Archaeology)
