This catalogue of the Victoria & Albert Museum's superb collection of medieval carvings (dating from c. 400-1200) is the first to be published since 1927. Masterpieces from every period are included among the 120 entries, ranging from the Symmachi Panel from late antiquity to the St Nicholas Crozier from the romanesque 12th century. Also discussed is the museum's approach to the study and collecting of these works.
