4.0 out of 5 stars The English home from then until now, 5 Feb 2009
By 
Margot P (Finchingfield, Essex, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The English House (Hardcover)
The starting point for Clive Aslet's easy-to-read social history is his own house in London. His interest in its past - who built it, when and in what circumstances, who has lived there - broadens to encompass all periods of English dwellings from the Middle Ages up to the present.
These are not grand palaces or defensive castles; they're the houses which the middle strata of society built for themselves, inherited or developed. One example (still standing, still lived-in) is chosen for each period, from the medieval hall-house to the suburban semi.
It's an engaging read, where facts are marshalled as comfortably as the red bricks of a Jacobean mansion. I enjoyed it so much that I gave a copy as a Christmas present.

This review is from: The English House (Hardcover)
Beautifully written, it traces English domestic architecture and life styles through the centuries by a series of well-researched examples and masses of additional, relevant and enlightening comment. A perfect present for anyone who is interested in hiistory, buildings and townscapes, even professionals. Marvellous.
