Dr Grażyna Nawrolska has participated in the excavations in Elbląg from the very beginning and has undertaken to make a synthetic study of the results so far. She does not limit herself to presenting the archaeological material, but combines it with information from written sources and results of specialist research. The work presents a wealth of source material, also in an extensive illustrative form, which is extremely important for research into the history of Elblag and the Hanseatic cities in the Middle Ages.
(from the editorial review by Prof. Roman Czai, PhD)
The high quality of the study is due to the very good preparation of the author for the undertaken work, proper understanding of the method of historical archaeology, very good knowledge of European literature on the subject and its appropriate use […]. Particular threads of the work have a strongly marked authorial character. They are the result of reflections gathered over many years of archaeological research in Elbląg […]. The openness of the text means that it will also be useful to representatives of other disciplines…
