About the Authors
  • This the first of a three-volume survey of more than 700 greater houses of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries that survive in England and Wales, and the first to be undertaken for over 150 years and by far the most comprehensive to date. All major and most lesser houses are appraised, taking account of their architectural development and historical relevance. They are grouped by region, prefaced by short introductions that establish their historical and architectural context. Volume 1 describes nearly 200 houses in northern England, and contains over 200 illustrations, 100 plans and maps, appendices and a full bibliography.

    • A unique, pioneering survey which offers comprehensive information and illustrative material in a detailed but non-technical way
    • Offers an essential reference tool for all historians and architectural historians of the period, archaeologists, local historians
    • Volume I contains over 300 illustrations of houses in Northumbria, Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...Emery clearly has produced a work of high technical quality....This work will be of great interest to historians of architecture....[its] value should extend well beyond those amateurs and professionals interested in medieval architecture. This project should prove to be of great value to social and economic historians and even to specialists in political and military history." Bernard S. Bachrach, Albion

    "...a truly impressive achievement." M.F. Hearn, Speculum

    "This is an excellent scholarly survey that should be consulted by historians of the period and can serve as a reliable reference work. It includes an abundance of clear photographs and well-drawn maps...This book is full of interesting discussions..." Historian

    "Students of literature therefore owe a debt to writers like Anthony Emery, who describe aspects of madiaeval life in detail and help us to see how far fiction reproduced reality." P.J.C. Field, Arthuriana
