Waterways and Canal-Building in Medieval England
The first study of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman canals and waterways, this book is based on new evidence surrounding the nature of water transport in the period. A collection of essays from economic historians, geographers, geomorphologists, archaeologists, and place-name scholars, this study unearths this neglected but important aspect of medieval engineering and economic growth. Its new perspective broadens our understanding of the economy, landscape, settlement patterns, and inter-regional contacts of medieval England.
