The Archaeology of Mills and Milling

by Martin Watts

The Archaeology of Mills and Milling Synopsis

This account of grain mills and milling from prehistory, through Roman and medieval times, to the post-medieval and modern period is not just another book about windmills and watermills. Concentrating on Britain, it looks at the archaeological evidence for the early periods and at the interpretation of remains and standing mills, along with documentary evidence, for the last millennium. Individual chapters cover a brief history of the study of mills; the prehistory of milling; the introduction of mechanical milling by the Romans; the Anglo-Saxon mills; medieval mills, whether monastic, castle-based or secular; post-medieval and modern mills. The work is completed by a full glossary of technical terms and a bibliography for further reading.
