    "The variety of subject matter and the erudition of the authors makes this volume a very enjoyable read which steers the reader away from his or her own specialised field of research and provides fresh insights into the late medieval world." - Nicholas R. Amor, Proceedings of the Suffolk Institute of Archaeology and History
