This beautifully illustrated book now re-creates Brother Cadfael's herbal kingdom. It begins by tracing the history of herbals and herb gardens, and places Cadfael's herb garden in the PDF context of the monastic gardens at Shrewsbury. It describes Cadfael's work as a healer, one of his duties being to supply medicines for the infirmary, and traces a typical year in the life of this devoted herbalist. The A-Z section of the book lists all the herbs and plants mentioned in The Brother Cadfael Chronicles, and explains their various uses in medieval times - before the days of modern antibiotics, medicines, and flavorings, herbs and herbal remedies were an essential part of the medieval world. Most could be found in Cadfaels' beloved herb garden, or in the surrounding PDF fields and hedgerows, faithfully evoked in full color in this unique and informative book.
