Samenvatting

The Association's 1998 conference was focused on Windsor. The castle and College of St George, with its chapel, were the main themes. The architectural papers, however, extended to the parish church at Shottesbrooke, Reading Abbey and Eton College: this volume contains most of the papers given at the conference. Following an introduction to Windsor in the context of medieval Berkshire, there are chapters considering the work of Henry III, the remarkable buildings of Edward III, and the restoration after the tragic fire of 1992. Other chapters consider decorative elements in the chapel and the College, from floor-tiles in the Aerary to Henry III's wall-paintings in the Lower Ward. The book throws new light on many aspects of the castle and the College, and confirms, surely, Matthew Paris's view that there was 'no more splendid a castle in all of Europe'. British Archaeological Association (BAA) Conference Transaction Series BAA Conference Transactions contain studies on medieval art, architecture and archaeology arising from the BAA's annual conference. Each volume is compiled by an invited guest editor.
