Now far from the sea, Sandwich was a thriving port in medieval times, its calm anchorage housing royal fleets and cargo ships from foreign parts, bringing luxuries from the Mediterranean and beyond. The merchants dealing in these goods built impressive timber-framed houses, and many surviving examples are profiled in this study of the history of one of England's best-preserved medieval towns.
