Riassunto: In 1535 Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn visited Acton Court in southern Gloucestershire, the home of the favoured courtier Nicholas Poyntz. Built in the 13th century, on an older structure, by the Acton family, the moated manor was transformed by Nicholas and his father into the grand Tudor mansion that we can see large sections of today. This illustrated volume presents the results of `above- and below-ground archaeology'. The demolished parts of the house were excavated while the unique 16th-century features inside the house, such as painted friezes, are studied in detail. It was also during the excavation that the moat was rediscovered. With each section contributed by a specialist, the volume discusses the history and restoration of the house, before examining in detail the archaeological and structural remnants for each phase and part of the house, focusing on the evidence from the time of Henry's visit. Specialist reports also examine the finds including architectural fragments (including a rare sundial from the early 16th century), building material, woodwork, decorative plaster, graffiti (including sketches of ships), pottery, glass, coins, dress accessories, organic and animal remains, and longbows.

Condizione libro: Very Good. xxi + 444pp, inc. figs, tables & coloured plates, laminated card, 4to card cover marked, back cover bottom corner curled, Jeffrey May bookplate inside front cover For more than 400 years generations of the Acton family, and their successors the Poyntz family, occupied the substantial manor house at Iron Acton in South Gloucestershire. Successive remodelling and extensions of their thirteenth-century moated manor house reflected the growth in wealth of the Actons, and later the increasing prosperity and rise to royal favour of several Poyntz family heirs, culminating in a three-day visit in 1535 by Henry VIII, Queen Anne Boleyn and their retinue. Archaeological evidence has shown that a new east range was most probably built especially for this royal visit. Much of its first-floor layout and some of the elaborate painted decoration (possibly by craftsmen of the Royal Works) survive, and debris was found of stucco (very early examples of its use) from a ceiling and an overmantel. Exotic glass and ceramic tableware had been bought, presumably for the occasion. More building development by the mid-1550s, the last major works at the site, gave Acton Court the outwardly regular appearance of a courtyard house. The surviving structures at Acton Court display much of their mid-sixteenth-century appearance. Codice libro della libreria 58114
