Lost Treasures of Britain Summary

Lost Treasures of Britain: Five Centuries of Creation and Destruction by Roy Strong

Britain is a country whose history can still be experienced and enjoyed by visiting the great castles, cathedrals, country houses and gardens of the past and by viewing the many historic works of art in museums and galleries. But while much survives, much too has been lost. Through the iconoclasm of the Reformation in the 16th century, the Civil War in the 17th century and subsequent losses due to causes as various as fire and changing fashion, Britian has lost many treaures. Covering three centuries from the Tudor age, Lost Treasures of Britian provides a panorama of some of the most famous lost buildings, gardens, paintings, jewels and mauscripts together with a description of their fate.
