Houses and Cottages is based on Professor Brunskill¿s considerable research work and on archaeological and documentary discoveries. It looks inside the buildings and shows how and why they were originally planned and how they have evolved, often from very simple structures. In the process, a great amount of fascinating information is revealed about the lifestyles of the people for whom the houses were built, both in terms of their work and of their social lives. In addition there are detailed chapters on materials and methods of construction and on rooms and their uses, all of which provide further insights into why structures as we see them now evolved in the way they did from the original plans.
