About the Authors
  • Greater Medieval Houses of England and Wales, 1300–1500 is a three volume survey offering an assessment of nearly 700 houses and a synthesis of current knowledge and research. This second volume, first published in 2000, covers central England and Wales and is divided into five geographical regions. Each of the four English regions is supported by historical and architectural introductions, and by a thought-provoking essay stimulated by a key building in the region. The fifth section, on Wales, is the first overview devoted solely to medieval Welsh houses. The text is complemented by hundreds of illustrations - plans and maps, early engravings, and photographs showing the present condition of almost every house discussed. Many traditional assumptions are challenged on well-known buildings, making this volume - and the survey as a whole - essential reading for anyone interested in medieval English and Welsh history and culture.

    • The second volume of the most wide-ranging account yet attempted of nearly 700 houses of the later medieval period in England and Wales
    • Contains the first comprehensive account of medieval dwellings in Wales
    • Contains many hundreds of illustrations, including a comprehensive photographic archive of all the buildings surveyed

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book is scholarly and based on wide interdisciplinary reading and architectural knowledge of medieval and subsequent socio-architectural developments … His achievement in satisfying both professionals and amateurs is unquestionable.' The English Historical Review

    'Its inestimable value is the impressive range of entries, some 230 for England … these make it the first port of call for any study of the period.' Archaeological Journal

    'There is no doubt that Emery's three-volume series will become classic reference work for all those interested in high-status medieval domestic architecture. It fills an important gap in the market, combining the sound, empirical study of medieval buildings with an awareness of their social meaning in the past.' Medieval Archaeology

    '… 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

    '… a welcome addition to the bookshelves and libraries of interested amateurs and academics alike … There is no doubt that Emery's three-volume series will become a classic reference work for all those interested in high-status medieval domestic architecture. It fills an important gap in the market, combining the sound, empirical study of medieval study of medieval buildings with an awareness of their social meaning in the past.' Medieval Archaeology
