If it is a reference guide you want then this is the book. It has been regarded as such for many years now. This latest book has been updated / re-written. If you study churches and history this will not be bettered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disciplined approach to the subject, 15 July 2013
By 
R. Fowkes "Roger Fowkes" (Northamptonshire, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Archaeology of Churches (Paperback)
I have learned more about church architecture from this book than from any other single volume I have read on the subject. I think this is because it benefits from a rigorously academic approach to the subject. As the author states, so little can be surmised about the development of church sites, without thorough archaeological investigation, anything pre-dating the Early Modern Period becoming subject to hazy speculation. The problem with that is that so few churches become available for such scrutiny. This shows in the book, as relatively few examples are cited repeatedly, albeit pertinently. Copiously illustrated, the text refers to the pictures and figures throughout, aiding understanding. On a smaller level, I learned the answers to several enigmas: in my childhood, my parents told me that a small piece of black, dried material on the door of Stoke Dry church, Rutland, was "malefactors skin", but now I know that painted cow-hide was used to cover Medieval church doors!

This review is from: The Archaeology of Churches (Paperback)
The content of this book is excellent, however, many of the pages hadn't been cut and had to be tackled with a paper knife to enable reading.
