Online resources about medieval English architecture?
« on: August 26, 2006, 09:12:43 PM »
That's an incredibly particular question to ask on a general writing forum, but I thought I'd try anyway.

I consider myself a relatively experienced internet user, but I've been unable to find anything to suit my needs anywhere online.  I've even found wikipedia's information on the subject to be lacking.  If possible, I'd like some information on the general styles, layouts and materials used.  Also about who lived in what kinds of buildings and how things varied when going from cities to towns to villages.

Thanks in advance.

Here is one of the sites I like http://www.medieval-life.net/index.htm it isn't really detailed but if you look around long enough you can get a decent feel for the period so you can flesh it out with details from other sites.  I've listed a couple of my favourite medieval research sites below:

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most...
