Description
This volume explores the archaeology and material culture of the Baltic crusades against Prussian tribes in the thirteenth century, and the subsequent society created by the Teutonic Order which lasted into the sixteenth century. It is sub-divided into broadly chronological themes, beginning with an historical outline, exploring the settlements, castles, towns and landscapes of the Teutonic Order's theocratic state and concluding with the role of the reconstructed and ruined monuments of medieval Prussia in the modern world in the context of contemporary Polish culture.
