      Dear Philippa Alderton,


      One new and two forthcoming items that will interest medieval
      archaeologists and re-enactors:

      Firstly, we have received some copies of Robin Wood's very
      attractively produced history of that humblest of objects: the wooden
      bowl. The book looks at woods used and turning techniques, but perhaps
      the greatest assets are the book's photographs which present bowls
      from the Iron Age and Roman periods, through Anglo-Saxon and later
      medieval examples, and ending up with Tudor and later pieces. And
      what's more, we are offering 20% off the cover price. Click below to
      see more details and to order.

      Our second book, which will be available at the very end of the year
      is Olaf Goubitz's "Purses in Pieces". The book looks at and
      illustrates purses, pouches, bagsd and cases from the later middle
      ages and sixteenth century, all of which were found in Goubitz's
      native Netherlands. We have an introductory offer price of $35 on the
      book and you can click below for more details, including some sample
      pages to see just how well-illustrated the book will be.

      And finally, also from Olaf Goubitz, we are delighted to announce that
      his "Stepping Through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric
      Times until 1800" will be released in paperback later this year. The
      book became increasingly hard to find in hardback and finally went out
      of print, so the appearance of a paper edition (which, while not
      cheap, is still considerably cheaper than the old hardback) shoudl be
      very welcome.

      The bowls book is available now, but the other two will not be here
      until the end of the year. Still, you can secure your copy by ordering
      now.... I hope you will.

      With regards,

      Ian Stevens

      Heat it up
      Hit it hard
      Repent as necessary.

      Priorities:

      It's the smith who makes the tools, not the tools which make the smith.

      Denial of evidence is not refutation of evidence.

      Blessed be the self-righteous, for they shall inherit themselves.
