York archaeologists contribute to new book

Posted on 16 February 2017

Papers from four York archaeologists feature in "Medieval Archaeology"

Papers by four archaeologists from the Department of Archaeology have been featured in a new book, Medieval Archaeology. Focusing on the archaeology of medieval Europe (c. 1000–1550AD), the four-volume book aims to provide fresh and independent insights to the medieval world by drawing on sources of evidence that are unique to Medieval Archaeology, such as extant medieval churches.‌

The gathered materials have been carefully selected to highlight the key issues and debates in the development and contemporary practice of medieval archaeology. Featuring contributions from Aleks McClain, Kate Giles, Terry O'Connor and Michelle Alexander, the collection of 77 papers aims to enables researchers and advanced students to make better sense of a vast—and rapidly growing—corpus of scholarship that encompasses the disciplines of archaeology, history and art history.
