The Medieval Household
This book brings together the astonishing diversity of excavated furnishings and artefacts from medieval London homes. These include roofing and other structural items, decorative features and fittings, and an assortment of culinary utensils, writing instruments, and toys and weights.
Illustrating some 1,000 items, the catalogue provides a fascinating account of how metalwork and glassware manufacturing trends changed during the period covered, while close dating of many of the finds has resulted in many new insights into life at the time.
