Description

Drawing together material culture excavated in the late 20th century in Israel, Cyprus, Syria and Jordan, this text examines 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 pursuits; death and burial; and building techniques. This illustrated volume creates a portrait of the period, which should make interesting reading for all those interested in the Middle Ages, and in particular the Crusaders.

Author Biography
