This new book is the first authoritative account of the history of the wooden bowl. It details evidence of the turners craft dating back 4000 years and looks at the development of lathe technology, as well as the tools and timbers used.
Extracts from Medieval account books show the wide range and vast quantity of work turners produced and even how much they were paid. Many examples of their work recovered from excavations show the vessels from which our ancestors ate and drank and how the forms changed through the centuries.
