Royal Commission on Historical Monuments (England) - Buckinghamshire (South) - Volume One

£15.99

Product description

This volume contains a Sectional Preface which calls attention to any particularly interesting examples mentioned in the Inventory; an illustrated Inventory, with a concise account of the monuments visited; a list of monuments that the Commissioners have selected as especially worthy of preservation; a glossary of architectural, heraldic and archaeological terms; a map showing the topographical distribution of the scheduled, and an index.

Under the heads of parishes, arranged alphabetically, will be found a list of their respective monuments. The chronological sequence chosen is not perhaps scientifically perfect, but it has been found a workable basis for classification. The order adopted is as follows:
(1) Prehistoric monuments and earthworks.
(2) Roman monuments and Roman earthworks.
(3) English ecclesiastical monuments.
(4) English secular monuments.
(5) Unclassified monuments.
In addition to dwelling houses, the English secular class (4) includes all such earthworks as mount and bailey castles, homestead moats, etc. To the section of unclassified monuments (5) are assigned all undateable earthworks,as, for instance, unopened tumuli.

This is a fascinating book and should interest historians and archaeological historians. The book is board bound, with the front cover having a couple of stains. there is shelf wear to the edges of the front and back covers and to the spine. The book is tightly bound. While the pages have a lilttle tanning to the edges, otherwise they are clean.

An interesting piece of social and archaeological history.
