Medieval Town Walls: An Archaeology and Social History of Urban Defence

Front Cover
For the first time, the authors draw together a variety of evidence to reveal the chronologies, functions, structures, and social significance of urban defences in Britain. They show that the walls and their related structures are a mixture of military pragmatism, commercial logic, and symbolism.
