The recording of architecture & its publication

CBA Research Report No 2 (1955)

Reprinted from Archaeologia Cambrensis, CIV (1955).


Title page of report 2

The published records of architecture, especially of medieval buildings, at present fall far short of the requirements of students of the subject, in their range, comprehensiveness, and accuracy of presentation. What is most needed is a standard corpus of dated material, and all those who can are urged to contribute to this important work. To be properly useful, such a corpus should be based on uniform methods of measurement, draughtsmanship, and reproduction. This memorandum suggests standards and methods in making records, and indicates the most urgent needs.
