This exciting new introduction to medieval archaeology looks critically at the discipline and analyses how it differs from prehistoric archaeology. It asks why we study it and how its study has made an impact on the public consciousness in films, books and TV programmes. Gerrard looks at the people and excavations that have been important in the development of the discipline while at the same time providing an essential synthesis of the core theory and methodology used. Topics covered include: *thinking about medieval archaeology *fieldwork *landscape *settlement.
