Medieval Houses Summary

Medieval Houses by Anthony Emery

Books on medieval castles are legion but there have been remarkably few on the associated subject in medieval houses. This book adopts a radically new approach to the development of houses between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries from Norman to Tudor times emphasising how their design evolved in response to political and social influences. More than a thousand medieval houses have survived in England and Wales and a list of those that are open to the public is included in the book.

Medieval Houses Reviews

"This compact 176-page guide, loaded with color and black-and-white photos and illustrations, is an indispensable companion for any enthusiast of UK houses and manors built between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries." --Renaissance Magazine
