Wood Use in Medieval Novgorod PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Wood Use in Medieval Novgorod free pdf The medieval Russian archaeological site of Novgorod has among the most comprehensive collections of excavated wooden objects and structures of any site in the world. The town and its material culture were completely dominated by wooden architecture and artifacts, all excellently preserved due to anaerobic waterlogged conditions. This book describes various aspects of the use of wood in medieval Novgorod in twenty-five chapters written by the world's leading authorities on this material. It provides fascinating detail on the way wooden material was used in structures, industrial activity, transport, household objects, musical instruments, accountancy, ritual, and decoration.
