This is the first reference work to cover the archaeology of medieval Europe. No other reference can claim such comprehensive coverage--from Ireland to Russia and from Scandinavia to Italy, the archaeology of the entirety of medieval Europe is discussed.
"Highly readable for nonspecialists… Recommended for large public and academic libraries." -- Booklist/RBB
"Both students and lay readers interested in medieval studies will find it a valuable source." -- Against the Grain
"An authoritative resource on the field of medieval archaeology… There is no comparable work currently available… Highly recommended for academic libraries supporting programs in archaeology or European history." -- American Reference Books Annual
"There is no encyclopedia with which to compare this work, which is highly readable for nonspecialists. Very little technical language is used. Bibliographies accompany each entry, and a subject guide by country and an index facilitate access. The work is recommended for large public and academic libraries where study of the social and urban aspects of this historical period may be augmented by knowledge gleaned from these digs." -- Booklist/RBB
