'John Schofield is to be congratulated on bringing together the fruits of so much painstaking reseach to give us a better appreciation of the medieval glory that has departed forever.' 20120331 'The sheer quantity of data and analysis presented here will make it a staple reference work of church archaeology research and teaching for years to come, and its deft presentation of a wealth of interdisciplinary information should ensure that it serves as a template for future publications of cathedral excavations.' 'this is a magnificent and seminal volume, and it redounds greatly to the credit of English Heritage to have brought it to publication.' 'Thorough, fascinating and weighty without being elitist, this book ... is an unbeatable landmark publication.'
