The twelfth volume in this series consists of papers given at Rouen in 1989, the Association’s first conference to be held on the continent. Contributors study Rouen itself, its archaeology and urban history, its cathedral and churches, as well as other important monuments of Upper Normandy. Architecture, sculpture, wall -painting, stained glass, manuscripts, floor tiles and iron work are explored; full use is made of rich documentation including the written and visual records left by French and English antiquaries. This volume makes a valuable contribution to the study of Rouen and of Normandy, a region of special interest on both sides of the channel throughout its history. Colour plates are included for the second time in this series, illustrating the wall paintings of the Petit-Quevilly and their restoration.
