The Lawn Road Flats: Spies, Writers and Artists

Hardback
by Burke, David
The Isokon building, Lawn Road Flats, in Belsize Park on Hampstead's lower slopes, is a remarkable building.

Paperback
by Harari, Yuval Noah

Medieval Wall Paintings in English and Welsh Chuches

Paperback
by Rosewell/1
Highly Commended in the Best Archaeological Book category of the 2008 British Archaeological Awards. Wall paintings are a unique art form, complementing, and yet distinctly separate from, other religious imagery in churches. Unlike carvings, or stained glass windows, their support was the structure itself, with the artist's 'canvas' the very stone and plaster of the church. They were also monumental, often...

Paperback
by Norbert Ohler
How did people travel in the middle ages? Evidence shows that despite all the likely deterrents - danger from man and beast, uncertainty of lodging and food, even the basic matter of finding the way -our medieval ancestors moved about far more than we might expect. They set out even on major journeys with a confidence which argues the existence of a network of major routes and minor tracks, the arteries by ...
