A lavishly illustrated, erudite and very readable guide to its subject. (Contemporary Review)
A monumental book on a vital architectural subject ... clear, succinct and informative ... It is a highly to be recommended. (Philip Dixon, University of Nottingham, Antiquaries Journal)
Authoritative, thought-provoking and succinctly written, it is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the field. (John Goodall, Country Life)
This important addition to the literature is the first overall study of the architecture of Norman England since Sir Alfred Clapham's English Romanesque Architecture after the Conquest (1934). Eric Fernie, a recognized authority on the subject, begins with an overview of the architecture of the period, paying special attention to the importance of the architectural evidence for an understanding of the Norman Conquest. The second part, the core of the book, is an examination of the buildings defined by their function, as castles, halls, and chamber blocks, cathedrals, abbeys, and collegiate churches, monastic buildings, parish churches, and palace chapels. The third part is a reference guide to the elements which make up the buildings, such as apses, passages, vaults, galleries, and decorative features, and the fourth offers an account of the processes by which they were planned and constructed. This book contains powerful new ideas that will affect the way in which we look at and analyze these buildings.
