Tudor antiquaries for the 21st century
Somebody needs to publish a critical edition of Camden's Britannia. Sounds like a job for Boydell Press. (By the way, I used to live in Woodbridge. Right down the road from Sutton Hoo.) While they're at it, let's have new critical editions of Leland's Itineraries, Lambarde's Perambulation of Kent, and Stow's Survey of London. I think it's time for some fresh readings of these classic antiquarian texts.
