Book description
In one glorious, richly illustrated volume, the Medieval world of Brother Cadfael - the 12th century Welsh monk and herbalist- comes to life in an encyclopedic guide to the history (including maps), plants, herb and characters as found in the bestselling mysteries of Ellis Peters....
Indexing the mysteries produced a list of over one thousand characters and locations, factual and fictional - some appearing in only one story, others recurring again and again.
