'Drawing on an exceptional collection of archaeological materials recovered from the interior of the standing Barracks building, Davies et al. trace a narrative that details the operation of the asylum and extends into the intersecting lives of migrants and their keepers alike. The identities and experiences of this diverse population materialise in a collection of well-preserved artefacts - from fragments of large-print texts, carved bone sewing tools and children's toys, to individually labelled dispensary bottles that corroborate the documentary record.'-- Linnea Kuglitsch * Post-Medieval Archaeology *
