Review of Contents

This outstanding popular reference work describes the development of Welsh domestic architecture from the late Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution. All house types - the medieval first-floor halls and hall-houses, the sub-medieval house of the late Tudor and Stuart periods, the gentry houses of the Renaissance and the cottages of quarrymen and smallholders - are described in terms of both their plan and construction and their historical and geographical significance. Houses of the Welsh Countryside was first published to in 1975, and updated in 1985 to include recent discoveries, as well as revised interpretations of old sites, the comprehensive illustration of the first edition is further enhanced with new drawings, maps and colour photographs.
