Summary

This book brings together the papers presented at the Society for Medieval Archaeology's spring conference held in York in 2002. The conference set out to reunite urban and rural archaeology. Papers define the differences between town and country, compare the two ways of life, trace the interconnecting links between townspeople and country dwellers, and show how they interacted and influenced one another. Contributors include archaeologists concerned with artefacts, buildings, environment and regions, historical geographers working on urban space, and historians interested in material culture. This is an indispensable volume for archaeologists and a wide readership of scholars. Among the contributors to this volume are: Umberto Albarella (meat production and consumption), Geoff Egan (artefacts), Kate Giles (public buildings), Maureen Mellor (pottery), Sarah Pearson (rural and town houses) and Terry Slater (town plans).
