English medieval industries : craftsmen, techniques, products

The approach to each industry, in this study, is by material, discussing its acquisition, working, and sale as a finished product. Only industries that resulted in the production of consumer goods, and where substantial numbers of artefacts survive from the Middle Ages, are dealt with here.
