This volume presents a number of essays that demonstrate the fertility and originality of recent work in Medieval Studies. Their approaches reflect how interdisciplinary methodologies applied to Medieval Studies have potential repercussions and value far beyond the boundaries of the Middles Ages. These chapters demonstrate the value of medieval research to our own times, both in terms of providing answers to some of the specific questions facing humanity today and in terms of much broader considerations.
Presenting bioarchaeological research from the Feeding Anglo-Saxon England project, along with insights into ploughing technology, brewing, the nature of agricultural revolutions, and farming practices in Roman Britain and Carolingian Europe, this volume is a contribution to environmental archaeology and medieval studies.
