Sense and Feeling in Daily Living in the Early Medieval English World

Edited by Maren Clegg Hyer and Gale R. Owen-Crocker

Liverpool University Press

Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe LUP

  • This volume provides an exciting new perspective on the perception and experience of sense, sensation and emotion in early medieval England.
  • In keeping with the other books in the Daily Living series, it continues the series' unique interdisciplinary approach, bringing archaeology, text, and pictorial evidence to bear on sensations and emotions of pre-Conquest English people.
  • The book's emphasis on evidence for the material conditions surrounding the senses and feelings of early medieval peoples is relatively uncommon and has value not only for academic markets, but also for historical novelists, film makers and theatrical producers, and for the extremely large re-enactment market, in Britain and in the USA.
