Bibliophile price: £5.99
A Shire Archaeology book, a very well illustrated 64 page paperback with many maps and b/w photos. Most English and Welsh towns were founded or grew rapidly in the later medieval period, in particular between the mid 12th and early 14th centuries. The book gives a brief outline of the great growth in number and size of town and outlines the archaeological, documentary and cartographic evidence that is available. It relates that evidence to surviving and lost features in the townscape and provides enough background material for the reader to be able to see why, when, where and how any medieval town grew. Particular topics covered include town sites, their overall layout, street patterns, castles, walls and gates, markets, trades, churches, chapels, monasteries, suburbs, property boundaries and houses. Above all it is a practical guide to the study of medieval town plans. Full price.
