An Introduction to Ulster Architecture is designed as a general introduction to the architecture of Ulster. The text, lavishly illustrated with over 200 full colour photographs, many taken for this edition by A C W Merrick, opens up to the general reader a broad insight into the wonderful variety, richness and chronological range of the Province's architectural heritage. By use of examples drawn from all nine counties, it illustrates the development of local architecture from the prehistoric period to to the present day.

It identifies many of those characteristics which are particular to Ulster and relates them to the development of styles elsewhere. For anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of Ulster's architectural legacy, this book offers an indispensable starting point.
