Palliser's masterful study reveals the richness and complexity of medieval urban life ... Recommended. * CHOICE *
a very impressive synthesis of documentary records, archaeological evidence and the modern scholarship in a very accessible format ... Palliser's book should deservedly take its place in that list of 'new directions' and ... will play an important ongoing role in elucidating the history of medieval York for future generations. * Paul Oldfield, History *
paints a vivid picture of a fascinating city * Current Archaeology *
It is well written and nicely organised and exemplifies how to take new research and new ideas and present them in an important contribution to urban studies, which is most welcome. * Christian Steer, The Ricardian *
masterly general survey * Nigel Tringham, Yorkshire Archaeological Journal *
David Palliser has produced a book which is in almost every respect a masterwork of urban history, based on many years of reading and evaluating the mountain of texts which have been devoted to the study of medieval York ... an excellent book. * Tom Beaumont Jones, Medieval Archaeology *
