"The interesting discoveries at Wroxeter must 
often cause a. wish to be acquainted wiili some 
book which will enable a visitor to understand 
what he sees there. The one before us appears 
eminently calculated to meet such a. want, and, in 
fact, to furnish all that can be required for under- 
standing any assemblage of English antiquities, 
or any excavations of British tumulus or Roman 
city.    Altogether the book is the most interest- 
ing one of its class We have ever met with, and 
no one who purposes a visit to any place where 
antiquities are to be found should fail to nmke 
himself acquainted with it. It is agreeably 
written, free from everything like pedantry, and 
well cared for in the smaller but important parti- 
culars of lists, tables, and indices."- Spectator.

" Mr. Wright has done all that an antiquary can 
do to make us feel at home among embryo Saxon 
society. On the arrangements of an early Saxon 
house the description of Mr. Wright is elaborate 
and explicit.    When Mr. Wright comes to the 
Noimans we End his information is more ample, 
and, as he can boast that his work is not a compi- 
lation from writers who have written on the 
subject before, he has several new facts to com- 
municate or to place in u. new light. The usages 
of domestic life are copiously illustrated by the 
urawings of Mr. Fairholt from ancient manuscript 
illustrations. Mr. Wright's book contains avast 
store of information, and we can recommend it as 
readable and amusing."-Times. 
" A work like Mr. W'l'ighl'S ' History of Domestic 
Mmmers and Sentiments in England during the 
Middle Ages 'furnishes u. store of delightful renti- 
ing. Aided by his laborious, but gracefully em- 
ployed learning, and assisted by the hundreds of 
curious illustmtiolis, copied from authentic sources 
by Mr. Fai1'holt's pencil, we can make alnorning call 
upon the Anglo-Saxons.    We love to trace the 
past through the pages of :1 delightful work like 
this, which will commend itself to all 1'ea.(1eru."-
