Effigy Hunter is a literary genre-bender.

There's nothing like it. It's nonfiction medieval history, genealogy, monument photography, travelogue, a bucket list of where to go on your effigy hunt, anecdotes about the people behind-or under-the effigies, and a lesson in religious symbols and what they meant to the people who made them. This book contains more than 60 original images, and tables with more than 900 medieval names and burial places in Great Britain and Europe. Many of the subjects were royals or aristocrats, and others were famous or forgotten-until now.
If you're interested in ancestry research, this book is indispensable: you'll learn what some of your ancestors looked like, and chances are great that you share many of these ancestors with millions of people living today, so you can find out more about what kind of people they were as you extend your lines.
You need Effigy Hunter as your trail guide.
