There are few recent publications in English on medieval European seals, and many European matrices remain largely unpublished. The British Museum's collection of medieval seal matrices is largely unparalleled. This publication of papers by international scholars, from a conference at the Museum, presents iconographic studies of European medieval seals. The images on the seals are examined in terms of their user context as indicators of identity and status. The authors are historians, art-historians, archivists and archaeologists. The variety of approaches provides the volume with a rich, interdisciplinary character.
