Medieval Dwellings Campaigns Of Improvement & Modernisation





The Medieval Hall, Appreciations
Medieval dwellings are often heavily disguised by numerous campaigns of improvement and modernisation. Reconstruction drawings are necessary to show the essential features of the hallhouse, and they are a prominent feature of Houses of the Welsh Countryside. The hallhouse is so called because the principal room was the hall, a large room open to the roof and heated by a centrally-placed open hearth.

Appreciations:

Buguildy, Radnorshire

Gloddaeth
