The study of buildings—whether out of sheer interest or to assist planning decisions—is a branch of archaeology which is distinct from both archaeology and architectural history, yet allied to both. This book begins by providing background information about studying the basic materials used in a building's construction, such as stone, brick, or timber-framing. The author explains how various clues left by the builders can add to the historic background and use of the site, and explains how all these strands of information can be woven together to produce a detailed understanding of how any building has developed over the years. Over 100 illustrations and two invaluable appendices—typical examples of buildings and an illustrated glossary of terms—complete a handbook that has long been needed by professionals and amateurs alike.
