Prof. Tim Ayers
For a specialist in English art and architecture of the later middle ages, it is a wonderful opportunity to be able to research this richly documented palace chapel, at the very heart of royal government. It makes a stimulating point of contrast with my recent work on ecclesiastical and educational institutions. I am editing the medieval building accounts for the chapel, exploring their potential for multidisciplinary study, focusing upon issues of craft and time. I am also responsible for ‘Virtual St Stephen’s’, an online reconstruction of the building and its interiors at different points in their history.
