"Domestic Wooden Artefacts" traces the changing styles and manufacturing techniques of wooden domestic artefacts. The book attempts to answer questions about who made the many and varied objects, who used them and how their style and decoration compares to contemporary pottery, metal and stone artefacts. It contains much previously undated material, as well as material from a number of recent excavations. This text should be of interest to archaelogists interested in wooden finds and woodworking, and in the history of domestic life, as well as the general reader with an interest in the past.
