Description

The two volumes of The Archaeology of Medieval Europe together comprise the first complete account of Medieval Archaeology across the continent. This ground-breaking set will enable readers to track the development of different cultures and regions over the 800 years that formed the Europe we have today. In addition to revealing the process of Europeanisation, within its shared intellectual and technical inheritance, the complete work provides an opportunity for demonstrating the differences that were inevitably present across the continent - from Iceland to Sicily and Portugal to Finland.

and Portugal to Finland.
edited by martin carver
Forty-one archaeologists from fifteen countries collaborated
ˇand jan klápšt eto produce Volume 1, which was published in 2007 and
presented the period from the eighth to the twelfth centuries.
Sixty-six archaeologists from eighteen countries have got
together to create Volume 2, which surveys the scene from
the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries. In this second
volume, the same broad scheme is followed. After introducing
the method and theory of Medieval Archaeology, the focus
is on Habitat (environment, rural life, housing and
portable artefacts), followed by Power, where war, manufacture,
trade and towns are the subjects for discussion. A third
theme is the study of Spirituality, an often
overwhelming force in medieval life, which archaeologists encounter
in landscape, buildings and burial practice. As well as the
expected emphasis on Christian Catholic practice, there are
major sections showing the importance of Judaism and the
Islamic presence in later Medieval Europe.

Each volume is comprehensively illustrated throughout in
colour and monochrome, with line drawings, tables and
maps designed to guide the reader. The book is intended to
show what archaeology can do, not only for the
archaeologist, but for the historian, the art historian, the
environmentalist, the zoologist and the general scientist – in fact,
all those scholars, students and general readers, for whom
the Middle Ages is a fundamental element in the
foundations of modern Europe.
