9780415173612: Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the Latin East

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.

About the Author:

Adrian J.Boas is Lecturer in medieval archaeology at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and at haifa University. He has directed excavations at a crusader village and a number of castles near Jerusalem.

Review:

The book concentrates on archaeological material from modern Israel, which covers much of the Kingdom of Jerusalem...and material from the island of Cyprus...Crusader Archaeologyis an eloquent contribution to the field and the first of its kind since Meiron Benvesti's 1970 volumeThe Crusaders in the Holy Land.
–Journal of Anthropological Research

This exceptionally well illustrated book offers a splendid addition to understanding the history of the Middle Ages and particularly the Crusades....[T]his book is an invaluable guide to the extensive material culture and society of Crusader times....The author has succeeded in producing a study of fundamental importance to readers interested in the Middle Ages.
Choice

This exceptionally well illustrated book offers a splendid addition to understanding the history of the Middle Ages and particularly the Crusades. In combining history and archaeology (with emphasis in this book on the latter), the author has succeeded in producing a study of fundamental importance to readers interested in the Middle Ages at all levels.
