'The eagerly awaited and final volume of Anthony Emery's trilogy is now with us, and is as rich and lucid as its predecessors. This achievement of single-handed scholarship is prodigious and will stand for many years as a monument to Emery's application and skill and Cambridge University Press's vision and quality as pubkishers.' Journal of Medieval Archaeology
This is the third volume of Anthony Emery's magisterial survey, Greater Medieval Houses of England and Wales, 1300-1500, first published in 2006. Across the three volumes Emery has examined afresh and re-assessed over 750 houses, the first comprehensive review of the subject for 150 years. Covered are the full range of leading homes, from royal and episcopal palaces to manor houses, as well as community buildings such as academic colleges, monastic granges and secular colleges of canons. This volume surveys Southern England and is divided into three regions, each of which includes a separate historical and architectural introduction as well as thematic essays prompted by key buildings. The text is complemented throughout by a wide range of plans and diagrams and a wealth of photographs showing the present condition of almost every house discussed. This is an essential source for anyone interested in the history, architecture and culture of medieval England and Wales.
