The copious forests of Normandy gave rise to a rich wood architectural tradition in the medieval era, the production, forms, and individual examples of which are described in this collection. Following two sections that describe milling and building techniques, the wood construction used within 27 churches, palaces, cathedrals, and residences (which were also built of stone) is described in separate chapters. With many excellent color and b&w plates containing photos, drawings, plans, and other details, the volume provides a thorough and authoritative discussion of Romanesque and Gothic wood construction. The text is in French. Published by CRAHM (Centre de Recherches Archeologiques Medievales de Caen) and distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Company.
