Religion in Medieval London nominated for Book of the Year award
We are delighted to have been nominated in the Book of the Year category in the 2015 Current Archaeology Awards! Religion in Medieval London: Archaeology and Belief, is a popular title that synthesises evidence of belief from archaeological excavations in and around the capital.
The beautifully illustrated publication explores medieval religion and belief in all of its guises, from organised religion, both Christianity and Judaism, to superstition and witchcraft.
The rootedness of belief in the everyday life and death of Medieval Londoners is explored and evidence from cemetery sites, object of personal devotion, small parish churches and great cathedrals, is examined.
Please vote now for Religion in Medieval London on the Current Archaeology website!
Voting closes on the 6 February 2015 and the winner will be announced at the 7th annual Current Archaeology Live conference, taking place at University of London’s Senate House from 27-28 February 2015.
Religion in Medieval London: Archaeology and Belief is available to buy on the MOLA website priced at £10.
