The third volume in this highly acclaimed series provides a comprehensive photographic record of the regions sculpture, along with a detailed description of each stone and chapters that set the historical context.

Many pieces are published for the first time, including a remarkable series of slabs discovered in situ in the Minster cemetery. The carvings speak of a fusion of cultural impulses over a period when York was the political and economic focus of renewed settlement.

The continuity of Anglian traditions through the period of Viking domination is clearly demonstrated. Local workshops have been identified, stylistically and by cutting techniques: even the work of individual carvers can be detected. John Seniors geological analysis demonstrates extensive reuse of Roman building materials. Analysis of the inscriptions is provided by Raymond Page and John Higgitt. The volume comes complete with a copy of the General Introduction to the series.
