Vernacular Architecture

Vernacular Architecture is the annual journal of the Vernacular Architecture Group, which was founded in 1952 to further the study of traditional buildings. Originally focused on buildings in the British Isles, membership and publications have increasingly reflected an interest in buildings from other parts of the world, and the Group actively encourages international contributions to the journal.

Papers are welcome from both professionals and amateurs on all aspects of vernacular architecture, including theoretical or discursive treatment of the subject, the practical, technical and scientific aspects of the study of buildings and materials, the historical development of buildings, comparative studies of regional or wider interest, and accounts of individually significant buildings, often those which have been tree-ring dated. All papers are peer-reviewed. The journal also contains an annual list of tree-ring dated buildings in the British Isles, with dating details as well as descriptions of the buildings, and has a sizeable section of reviews of recent publications.
