Tom Licence is a Senior Lecturer in medieval history at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. He specialises in ecclesiastical history, with a particular interest in monastic history in the central Middle Ages. He has published on topics ranging from the spirituality of the Knights Templar and Hospitaller, through Cistercian spirituality, saints' cults, monastic foundation narratives, public spectacle, and the role of hermits and recluses in society. His hobby, however, is hunting for things.
This engagingly written and well-illustrated little book explores
an aspect of our past that has not received the attention it
deserves. * British Archaeology *
uses material culture - and a richly evocative turn of phrase - to offer vivid insights into everyday life * Current Archaeology *
