Locks and Lavatories: The Architecture of Privacy
Philippe Planel (au)
Step through the doorway of your own home & discover its fascinating past. Today we jealously guard our privacy, but in previous centuries living was much more communal. How has this change been reflected in the layout & furnishings of houses in Britain? How has the single-room hut of prehistoric times evolved into the house of today, each room with its own function? Discover: how the medieval hall has shrunk to an entrance lobby; why bathrooms only became common in houses after the late 19th century; why separate servantsí quarters & staircases were created; why 3-legged stools were more popular than 4-legged ones; & how labor-saving devices have transformed the home. A volume in the Gatekeeper Series from English Heritage. Illus.
