'… it is a stunning achievement … if the later middle ages ceases to be 'the most neglected period in English art history', Emery's labours will have made a significant contribution.' Midland History

Great book, product of years of research, should be on the shelves of every researcher interested in late medieval houses. Good quality copy arrived safely with plenty of packaging. Well worth the price I paid (one month's book allowance for an impoverished pensioner). Just the right amount of information about each building.

Taking an indepth journey into the medieval houses of England and Wales.

This is the second volume of Emery's "magnus opus" into the world of grand medieval domestic dwellings. He passes on his knowledge and research of this fascinating world with an ease which leads you on page after page and hardly wanting to put it down. Nor just the houses, but the families, the politics of the time, the life style of the rich and wealthy and influential aristocrats and soldiers, the high ranking ecclisiastics, whether abbots or bishops or archbishops. There is no doubt that the three volumes are without parallel. There is no other comparable work which explores the buildings themselves and also the life within them. The volumes are written with evident scholarship and also with great clarity. They are beautifully illustrated with a wealth of illustrations and with ground plans to reveal the way they worked. Happily quite a number of the buildings are open to the public so can form an excellent introduction to be read before any visit is made. It may not be a chesap book but it is certainly worth the price for the knowledge it contains and gives to the reader.
