Title:Medieval Roofs With Base-crucks and Short Principals
Originator:Alcock, N. W. + Barley, M. W.
Summary:Two examples of a base-cruck roof, in first-floor hall and in room over the gateway in the entrance block of Dartington Hall, are mentioned. Authors suggest that unusual features in this roof and in that of the Great Hall point to the work of one local carpenter.
