The Leverhulme Trust funds a two-year project

Posted on 2 August 2012

Dr Tim Ayers has been awarded funds to publish 'The Building Accounts for St Stephen's Chapel, Palace of Westminster,1292-1366'

Begun by Edward I in 1292 and completed by Edward III in the 1360s, St Stephen’s is one of the most important buildings in the history of English medieval art and architecture. Preserved in the The National Archives, the exceptionally full fabric accounts document the processes of royal patronage, and are of international significance as evidence for medieval crafts and their working practices. To produce a critical edition, Tim will be working with Dr Maureen Jurkowski, a medieval historian and archival researcher with particular expertise in documents from the royal Exchequer.
