New studies on manorial domestic buildings in England and northern France has led to a reappraisal of the essential elements of the seigneurial residence: the ground-floor hall, the chamber-block and the first-floor hall. The eight essays in this volume highlight the similarities and differences between the regions, and include contributions by: J Blair (English domestic planning, 1000-1250); P Dixon (The manor-houses of the Anglo-Scottish border); J Munby (Manorial building in timber in central and southern England, 1200-1550); J Decaens (De la motte au chateau de pierre dans le nord et l'est de l'Ile-de-France du XIIe au XVe siecle); E Gautier-Desvaux (Les manoirs du Perche); G Meirion-Jones, M Jones and J R Pilcher (The seigneurial domestic buildings of Brittany, 1000-1700).
