Tudor Houses Explained free pdf The commanding bulk of King Henry VIII in his full regalia, and Queen Elizabeth I with her fiery red hair, are mighty royal figures who still hold our fascination over four hundred years on. The Tudor period they dominated is still personified by the houses that remain standing in England's towns and villages. Black and white timber framed buildings 'jettying' out between more recent bland structures, and rambling rows of quaint cottages around a green- these are as much the iconic image of England as that of the monarchs themselves. This book sets out to explain the rich range of houses built during the Tudor period. It is divided into five sections, looking firstly at the general changes in society and how they affected the housing of the period. The second section explains the structure of the houses and the different materials used. There is a chapter on the styles of timber frame, brick, and stone houses, together with dating details. There is a section on interiors, with information about original features, and finally some details about the gardens and landscapes that surrounded the larger Tudor homes. There is also a Glossary, and a Quick Reference Guide that helps to identify the use of Tudor styles in houses of the Victorian and more modern eras.
