Abstract:
Nearly half the work is a new version, enlarged by 50% to about 3054 examples, of the catalogue of English and Welsh crucks. Two sections precede it, the first being a number of papers on general aspects of cruck construction while the second treats regional differentiation. In Section 1 the editor reviews the development of cruck studies. J T Smith's contribution (pp 5-24) is a revision of his 1975 paper on cruck distributions. The carpentry of crucks with particular reference to the erection process is treated by F W B Charles (25-8). Next comes a reprint of the 1976 paper by Alcock & R de Z Hall (28-36) on documentary evidence for crucks. P V Addyman (37-9) summarizes the largely negative evidence from excavations. European (especially French) evidence for crucks is considered by G I Meirion-Jones (39-56) who includes curved principals and a few possible excavated examples in his assessment. A survey of the origin and spread of cruck construction in Britain comes from Alcock (56-60), who sees Corrimony as close to the prototype. Section II begins with Alcock's consideration (61-81) of the regional differentiation of crucks in England and Wales; G P Stell (82-6) provides a preliminary list of Scottish crucks, and Irish material is covered by a revised reprint of A Gailey & D McCourt's 1978 paper (87-92). The new British catalogue occupies pp 93-171 and includes lists of related structures such as jointed crucks and upper crucks.
