The first volume in a series of three, this text offers an account of the architecture in Britain and Ireland between 600 and 1500. It includes a glossary of architectural terms and a gazetteer covering thousands of sites.
Everyone interested in architecture will find this book an indispensable companion to the discovery and appreciation of the astonishing number of Celtic, Saxon, Norman and medieval buildings and monuments which are still to be seen throughout Britain and Ireland. While providing a brief historical background to each period, it is mainly a comprehensive guide to the development and use of the wide range of surviving secular and ecclesiastical buildings, including church furnishings.
