St Paul's Cathedral : archaeology and history by John Schofield( )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first volume concerned solely with the archaeology of a major late 17th century building in London, and the major changes it has undergone. 'St Paul?s Cathedral' in the City of London was built in 1675?1711 to the designs of Sir Christopher Wren and has been described as an iconic building many times. 00In this major new account, John Schofield examines the cathedral from an archaeological perspective, reviewing its history from the early 18th to the early 21st century, as illustrated by recent archaeological recording, documentary research and engineering asssessment. A detailed account of the construction of the cathedral is provided based on a comparison of the fabric with voluminous building accounts which have survived and evidence from recent archaeological investigation. The construction of the Wren building and its embellishments are followed by the main works of later surveyors such as Robert Mylne and Francis Penrose. 00The 20th century brought further changes and conservation projects, including restoration after the building was hit by two bombs in World War II, and all its windows blown out. The 1990s and first years of the present century have witnessed considerable refurbishment and cleaning involving archaeological and engineering works. Archaeological specialist reports and an engineering review of the stability and character of the building are provided

Medieval towns by John Schofield( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though the book is primarily about medieval towns in Britain, many parallels are drawn with contemporary towns and cities all over Europe, from Ireland to Russia and from Scandinavia to Italy. It is written in the belief that medieval urban archaeology should be a Europe-wide study, as are the fields of architecture and urban history."--BOOK JACKET
The building of London : from the Conquest to the Great Fire by John Schofield( Book )

29 editions published between 1983 and 2000 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What did the medieval and Tudor city of London look like? How did it grow from its Roman and Saxon origins to a great European metropolis? This book presents a detailed account of the evolution of Britain's capital up to the Great Fire of 1666. This survey takes us from London's early days as a Roman provincial capital up to the teeming city, packed with timber framed buildings, that fell prey to the Great Fire."--BOOK JACKET

Archaeological practice in Great Britain : a heritage handbook by John Schofield( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heritage sector is now one of Britain's bigger industries, in terms of income generation and jobs (over 460,000 at the last count). It is also a popular industry to work in, attracting prospective employees from the home countries and from overseas. Yet, surprisingly, there is virtually no comprehensive overview from which to begin one's preparation. This manual intends to meet that need, telling readers a little about a lot, and thus complementing the many sources that provide further colour and detail. The Heritage Handbook is a unique 'user guide' to practicing archaeology and working in the cultural heritage sector within the diverse settings of Great Britain, comprising of: England, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. The Heritage Handbook is different to other textbooks. Presented in an accessible style, with a comprehensive and up-to-date bibliography and lists of useful websites, this book is written specifically as a sourcebook for budding archaeologists and other heritage practitioners, while providing useful context and information for those working elsewhere in the heritage sector, away from the 'coalface'. The three main authors have very different but complementary backgrounds, and in writing this book they have taken responsibility for the topics they know best. Other professionals with particular areas of expertise contribute short sections on particular (and often practical) subjects such as health and safety. Throughout, the specific contexts and differences between the various component nations and regions of Great Britain will be made clear, as will the similarities
London, 1100-1600 : the archaeology of a capital city by John Schofield( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1970s the increasingly effective conduct of archaeological work in the City of London and surrounding parts of the conurbation have revolutionised our view of the development and European importance of London between 1100 and 1600. There have been hundreds of archaeological excavations of every type of site, from the cathedral to chapels, palaces to outhouses, bridges, wharves, streams, fields, kilns, roads and lanes. The study of the material culture of Londoners over these five centuries has begun in earnest, based on thousands of accurately dated artefacts, especially found along the waterfront. Work by documentary historians has complemented and filled out the new picture. This book, written by an archaeologist who has been at the centre of this study since 1974, will summarise the main findings and new suggestions about the development of the City, its ups and downs through the Black Death and the Dissolution of the Monasteries; its place in Europe as a capital city with great architecture and relations with many other parts of Europe, from the Baltic to the Mediterranean. London has been the most intensively studied medieval city in Europe by archaeologists, due to the pace of development especially since the 1970s. Thus although this will be a study of a single medieval city, it will be a major contribution to the Archaeology of Europe, 1100-1600

Cromwell to Cromwell : reformation to civil war by John Schofield( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English reformers of the 1530s, with Thomas Cromwell at their head, continued to have a strong belief in kingly rule and authority, in contrast to their radical approach to the power of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church. Resisting the king was tantamount to resisting God in their eyes, and even on a matter of conscience the will of the king should prevail. Yet just over 100 years later, Charles I was called the 'man of blood', and Oliver Cromwell famously declared that 'we will cut off his head with a crown on it'. But how did we get from the one to the other? How did the deferential
The rise & fall of Thomas Cromwell : Henry VIII's most faithful servant by John Schofield( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Cromwell was a man of humble origins and outstanding intellect who rose up to become Henry VIII's chief minister and right-hand man during the English Reformation. He wielded enormous power while he retained the king's favour, but the failure of Henry's marriage to Anne of Cleves, which Cromwell had arranged, led to his swift downfall and execution. In this authoritative biography by an acknowledged expert in the field, John Schofield reveals that the popular image of Cromwell as a blood-stained henchman is largely fictional. Detailed research into contemporary sources illuminates his brilliant mind and his love for and patronage of the arts and humanities, while short case studies shed new light on his relations with, and his reputation among, Henry VIII's subjects. In his conclusion, Schofield narrates the drama of Cromwell's downfall and highlights the king's posthumous exoneration of the 'most faithful servant he ever had'."_Contracub

Archaeology of the Teufelsberg : exploring Western electronic intelligence gathering in Cold War Berlin by Wayne Cocroft( )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over fifty years, the white radomes of the Teufelsberg have been one of Berlin's most prominent landmarks. For half of this time the city lay over 100 miles behind an 'Iron Curtain' that divided East from West, and was surrounded by communist East Germany and the densest concentration of Warsaw Pact military forces in Europe. From the vantage point high on the Teufelsberg, British and American personnel constantly monitored the electronic emissions from the surrounding military forces, as well as high-level political intelligence. Today, the Teufelsberg stands as a contemporary and spectacular ruin, representing a significant relic of a lost cyber space of Cold War electronic emissions and espionage. Based on archaeological fieldwork and recently declassified documents this book presents a new history of the Teufelsberg and other Western intelligence gathering sites in Berlin. At a time when intelligence gathering is once more under close scrutiny, when questions are being asked about the intelligence relationship between the US and Germany, and amidst wider debate about the USA's National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence programmes, sites like the Teufelsberg raise questions that appear both important and timely"--
