Crusader Landscapes in the Medieval Levant is a collection of scholarly essays addressing a number of aspects of the archaeology and history of settlement in the crusader states established in the Middle East during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, collectively known as the Latin East, and on their influence on the neighbouring geographical areas. Wide-ranging in both subjects and disciplinary approaches and richly illustrated, this book includes analyses of the territory, fortifications, warfare, military orders, the church, daily life, arts, and literature.
 
Review Quotes
Christopher Tyerman, University of Oxford
“This is a splendid, balanced collection, bringing together a pleasing blend of young and established scholars in papers that appropriately embrace the wide combination of archaeological, documentary, and topographical interests that have characterised Denys Pringle’s own scholarship: a fine and fitting tribute.”
