This volume assembles Rolf Loeber’s groundbreaking articles on Irish houses and castles from the late medieval period to the mid-eighteenth century. Read together, these articles, mainly from journals that are not widely available, become a coherent and fresh survey of the theme and the period, marked by Rolf ’s trademark archival depth and ability to bring together architectural and cultural history in a rewarding way. This richly illustrated book features one hundred maps, plans and illustrations, redrawn and updated to form a visual panorama of the period.
