Wood and Woodworking in Anglo-Scandinavian and Medieval York
part of the ‘Craft, Industry and Everyday Life’ series
by Carole A Morris
The definitive study of over 1500 wooden objects and wood and iron woodworking tools recovered from some of the most important sites in York. Ranging from Anglo-Scandinavian (c850–1066) to later medieval (15th–16th century) in date the collection published here is an assemblage unprecedented from any site of any period in Britain.
The material ranges from domestic items such as vessels and containers, through personal items such as pins and combs, to leisure items, such as gaming boards and musical instruments. This is discussed in relation to material from throughout Europe and the techniques and tools of woodworking are explored. With each wooden artefact and associated tool described individually in the catalogue, this authoritative and lavishly illustrated volume is certain to become the standard work on wood and woodworking for years to come.
