New Archetype Titles for March 2011 !

The following two new titles from Archetype Publications have just arrived for the Chantry Library collection:

Leather Tanneries: The Archaeological Evidence edited by Roy Thomson and Quita Mould, Archetype Publications Ltd., in association with the Archaeological Group, London, 2011, ISBN: 978-1-904982-61-6
The papers in this volume go some way to correct some of the misinterpretations presently found in archaeological reports. Contributions cover many aspects of research into the evidence from prehistoric, Roman, medieval and early modern periods as well as descriptions of traditional techniques still used in different parts of the world today. Whilst the emphasis is on the interpretation of the evidence for leather tanning surviving in the archaeological record, other aspects such as standing tannery buildings are also considered.
