The Archaeology of Medieval Europe
Vol. I: Eighth to Twelfth Centuries AD

Edited by James Gram.-Campbell with Magdalena Valor

479 pages, illustrated, size 170 x 240 mm. Date of publication : December 20, 2007

The two volumen of The Archaeology of Medieval Europe Hill together comprise the first complete account of Medieval Archaeology across the Continent. Archaeologists from academia institutions in fifteen countries have collaborated to produce the first of these two books comprising fifteen thematic chapters. In addition, every chapter features a number of “box-texts”, by specialist contributors, highlighting sites or themes of particular importance. Both books are comprehensively illustrates throughout, in both colour and b/w, including line drawings and maps.

This ground-breaking set, which is divided chronologically (Vol 1 extending from the Eighth to Twelfth Centuries AD, and Vol 2 from the Twelfth to Sixteenth Centuries), will enable readers to track the development of different cultures and regional characteristics, throughout what was to become medieval Catholic Europe. In addition to revealing the gradual process of Europeanisation, with shared contexts and common technological developments, the complete work will provide the opportunity for demonstrating the differences that were inevitably present across the Continent –from Iceland to Italy, and from Portugal to Finland- and to study why such existed.
