"From the great half-timbered halls of the east to the humble thatched cottages of the west, Wales has a remarkably rich vernacular heritage. Every area of the Principality has unique building traditions, celebrated here in this study of folk culture. Researched by field survey in the 1930s, The Welsh House captures building traditions that had died centuries before in other parts of Britain. An important record for the social historian, it reflects the lives of the people who made and dwelt in them." "Since its publication in 1940 The Welsh House has grown into a classic text for students of both Welsh architecture and folk studies. Using photographs and illustrations, Peate records a world that was fast disappearing. His warning against the loss of traditional buildings remains as relevant today as when it was first published over sixty years ago." "This new edition preserves Peate's text from the revised second edition of 1944, and adds a new foreword by Dr Greg Stevenson. Additional material traces the fate of the homes in the original whilst examining the present day threat to our traditional dwellings. With colour photographs and a new bibliography on Welsh vernacular archiecture, this edition will be of interest to anyone living in, or curious to learn more about, the rich architectural heritage of Wales."--BOOK JACKET
