9780113000470: The Medieval Houses of Kent: An Historical Analysis

Scholars have long wished to know more about the medieval buildings of Kent, but the sheer number - more than in any other county in England - has stood in the way of a comprehensive inventory. Now, using selective sampling allied to tree-ring dating techniques, the Royal Commission has produced the first ever detailed study of this important body of buildings and their place within the overall development of timber-framed construction. Written by Sarah Pearson, The Medieval Houses of Kent looks not just at the architectural evidence; it also examines the economic, social and geographical factors that led to the erection and subsequent modification of these houses. exemplary photographs, line drawings and maps are used to illustrate the book, which will be of especial value to architectural, economic and social historians.
