xxii + 346pp, inc. many b/w figs, laminated card, 24x17cm These essays constitute the first radical reassessment since the 19th century of the role of architecture as an expression of lordship and status amongst Scottish secular and ecclesiastical elites in the period c. 1124-c. 1650. These studies of arhcitectural patronage of particular families of groups explore how the nobility operated socially and economically, as well as politically, in the organisation and structure of lordship throughout the medieval and renaissance periods.
