Greater Medieval Houses of England and Wales, 1300-1500 is a three volume survey offering an assessment of nearly 700 houses and a synthesis of current knowledge and research. This second volume, first published in 2000, covers central England and Wales and is divided into five geographical regions. Each of the four English regions is supported by historical and architectural introductions, and by a thought-provoking essay stimulated by a key building in the region. The fifth section, on Wales, is the first overview devoted solely to medieval Welsh houses. The text is complemented by hundreds of illustrations - plans and maps, early engravings, and photographs showing the present condition of almost every house discussed. Many traditional assumptions are challenged on well-known buildings, making this volume - and the survey as a whole - essential reading for anyone interested in medieval English and Welsh history and culture.
