Medieval English Travel: A Critical Anthology is the first anthology dedicated to medieval English travel writing, with a focus on the later Middle Ages. It consists of three sections: concise introductory essays written by leading specialists; an anthology of important and less well-known texts, grouped by destination; and a selection of supporting bibliographies organised by type of voyage. Some texts appear for the first time in a modern edition. The organising principle is one of expansive geography. Starting with local English narratives, the section moves to France, en-route destinations, Palestine, and the Far East. The supporting bibliographies, in turn, take a functional approach to travel, and support the texts by elucidating contexts for travel and travellers.
