The pilgrim souvenirs and secular badges in Salisbury Museum have been collected mostly within the last 35 years, from riverine contexts in Salisbury. Almost entirely previously unpublished, they comprise one of the most extensive collections in Britain. Brian Spencer, formerly Senior Keeper at the Museum of London, draws on his lifetime's study of these classes of object to provide this most comprehensive catalogue which will inform and delight both specialist and general reader alike. Study of these minor works of art and craftsmanship reveals much about society, whether in Salisbury ot the wider context of medieval Europe. The catalogue illustrates 325 objects.
Medieval objects from the city of Salisbury formed the nucleus of the collection upon which Salisbury Museum was founded in 1860. The importance of the medieval collection, now one of the finest in any British provincial museum, has grown with the acquisition of many casual finds and the excavated material from nationally significant sites including Clarendon Palace, Old Sarum and Gomeldon deserted village. This catalogue covers the arms and armour, coins, domestic stonework, harness pendants, rings, seal matrices, spurs, steelyeard weights, textiles and tiles, each written by national specialists. Many objects are published for the first time and more than 450 are illustrated here.
The third part of the publication of Salisbury Museum's medieval collection catalogues and reports on a wide range of objects, many of which are illustrated. These comprise bone objects, enamels, glass vessels, pottery, jettons, cloth seals, bullae and base metal objects. The distinguished team of contributors includes Arthur MacGregor, Rachel Tyson, John Cherry and Geoff Egan.

The Middle Ages are all around us in Britain. The Tower of London and the castles of Scotland and Wales are mainstays of cultural tourism and an inspiring cross-section of later medieval finds can now be seen on display in museums across England, Scotland, and Wales. Medieval institutions fromParliament and monarchy to universities are familiar to us and we come into contact with the later Middle Ages every day when we drive through a village or town, look up at the castle on the hill, visit a local church or wonder about the earthworks in the fields we see from the window of a train.The Oxford Handbook of Later Medieval Archaeology in Britain provides an overview of the archaeology of the later Middle Ages in Britain between AD 1066 and 1550. 61 entries, divided into 10 thematic sections, cover topics ranging from later medieval objects, human remains, archaeological science,standing buildings, and sites such as castles and monasteries, to the well-preserved relict landscapes which still survive. This is a rich and exciting period of the past and most of what we have learnt about the material culture of our medieval past has been discovered in the past two generations.This volume provides comprehensive coverage of the latest research and describes the major projects and concepts that are changing our understanding of our medieval heritage.
Postcolonial theories have transformed literary, historical and cultural studies over the past three decades. Yet the study of medieval art and visualities has, in general, remained Eurocentric in its canon and conservative in its approaches. 'Postcolonising', as the eleven essays in this volume show, entails active intervention into the field of medieval art history and visual studies through a theoretical reframing of research. This approach poses and elicits new research questions, and tests how concepts current in postcolonial studies - such as diaspora and migration, under-represented artistic cultures, accented art making, displacement, intercultural versus transcultural, hybridity, presence/absence - can help medievalists to reinvigorate the study of art and visuality. Postcolonial concepts are deployed in order to redraft the canon of medieval art, thereby seeking to build bridges between medievalist and modernist communities of scholars. Among the varied topics explored in the volume are the appropriation of Roman iconography by early medieval Scandinavian metalworkers, multilingualism and materiality in Anglo-Saxon culture, the circulation and display of Islamic secular ceramics on Pisan churches, cultural negotiation by Jewish minorities in Central Europe and the Iberian peninsula, Holy Land maps and medieval imaginative geography, and the uses of Thomas Becket in the colonial imaginary of the Plantagenet court.
A groundbreaking assessment of the use medieval English history-writers made of saints' lives.
