The Cathedral is one of England’s most important medieval buildings, a fact which its dramatic later history has helped to obscure. This volume discusses the history of Lichfield from the Roman period to the late nineteenth century; it casts new light on its archaeology and development, places some of the principle building campaigns in their wider national setting and considers the ways in which later architects sought to interpret and repair the fabric of the Cathedral. It also brings into focus the local context and in so doing examines important buildings with which few students of medieval studies and architectural history will be familiar.
