Item description for Terra Britannica: A Celebration of Earthen Structures in Great Britain and Ireland by John Hurd & Ben Gourley...

Earth construction is by no means a craft of the past. In recent decades interest has reawakened as part of the global search for a more sustainable future in construction, and new generations of earth builders are appearing. To a great extent, information and understanding of the basic principles of the material have grown out of investigations in pursuit of best practice in the conservation of historic and archaeological examples.

The book is divided into UK regional chapters, each of which illustrates the nature of earth building in the different regions. In each chapter, the authors discuss the historic and social aspects of earth construction in their region and reflect the priorities of that region. The book concludes with three chapters on the archaeology of earth, on World Heritage sites in Britain, and on earthen architecture in the new millennium.
The book will prove of interest and value to research scientists, architects and conservators interested in sustainable construction.
