A well-written history of the medieval fishing industry and fishermen - their families, homes and communities - of the South Devon coast, the first in-depth study of its kind. Harold Fox focuses especially on South Devon although reference is made to other examples from the south-west and the final chapter broadens the discussion to take in examples from other parts of England. Fox looks at the activities of inshore and estuarine fishermen, consumption of fish, markets and in particular the development of coastal settlements and fishing communities from the 11th century to the mid-16th century.
