Crusader Archaeology by Adrian J. Boas

Book Description

Crusader Archaeology draws together recent excavated material culture in Israel, Cyprus, Syria and Jordan to examine what life was like for the Crusaders in their territory, and how they were influenced by their new-found neighbours. Chapters discuss: * urban and rural settlements * surveying agriculture * industry * the military * the church * public and private architecture * arts and crafts * leisure pusuits * death and burial * building techniques. This highly illustrated volume creates a wonderful portrait of the period, which will make fascinating reading for all those interested in the Middle Ages, and in particular the Crusaders.
