Throughout England's history, its buildings have reflected not only changing tastes but social and economic conditions. This handsome volume presents a chronological survey of the nation's architecture from Saxon times, through the cathedrals and castles of the Middle Ages to the burgeoning suburbs of Metroland. Lavishly illustrated with more than 500 colour photographs, archival images, drawings, maps and plans, it shows how buildings, whether grand public projects or modest domestic structures, reflect and embody our rich and complex history.
