I was just investigating myself in medieval architecture, so the forum search led me here.
Apart from the aesthetics i'm also interested in the why's and how's of it, how casltes, abbeys and monastaries hav been planned, the more practical viewpoint of it.
How those folks thought about room layout and that sort of stuff.
I found this video quite interesting, it's in german though (but the automaticly translated subs work fine as far i can tell):
It's about a discovery that even whole medieval cities might have been very well planned from the beginning, opposed to the oppinon that they just "grew" to be how they are.
What sources, apart of google, do you folks use for your research?
Are there any good books on the matter?
