Sandwich : the 'completest medieval town in England' : a study of the town and port from its origins to 1600 by Helen Clarke( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sandwich was once one of the great ports of medieval England. It possessed the special privileges of a Cinque Port, was strategically placed to serve successive monarchs as a military and naval base for their overseas expeditions, and its trading activities extended far and wide. The town still displays signs of those prosperous centuries: an unchanged street plan, a virtually intact circuit of town walls, three parish churches, parts of three hospitals and an exceptionally large number of well-preserved medieval houses." "Evidence from standing structures, the archaeological record, and extensive documentary sources has been combined to trace Sandwich's development through the ages. New light has been shed on the location of the earliest settlement, the changes to the harbour and anchorage, the reasons for the unusual street pattern, and the relationship between town and royal castle. A survey of almost one hundred medieval houses brings out their urban form, and in conjunction with documents illustrates the different character of individual parts of the town and conjures up the material circumstances in which the inhabitants lived." "Although this is a book about a single town, it has a wider appeal. Combining the evidence from buildings, historical sources and archaeology has here resulted in a fuller picture than could have been obtained by using any one discipline alone. It is a method that could be equally rewarding in studies of other medieval towns."--Jacket

This attractive booklet is a guide to two walks around the historic town of Sandwich, once one of the great ports of medieval England.
