The Great Hall of the Bishop's Palace at Hereford

The Great Hall of the Bishop's Palace at Hereford CAREFUL examination of the horizontal beams above the arches framing the arcades of the 12th-century great hall of the bishop's palace at Hereford has brought to light additional structural evidence shewing that the hall, as originally built, had a clerestory and separate pent-roofs over the aisles. The proposed reconstruction is discussed with reference to surviving but incomplete examples of the same date at Leicester and Farnham, where the evidence for the architectural form is inconclusive. It is compared with earlier illustrations, including those in the Bayeux Tapestry. The evidence of the churches of late 10th and 11th-century date with transverse (diaphragm) arches is also adduced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Medieval Archaeology Taylor & Francis
