Updating my web-site for the new academic year

Just back from fieldwork in Paris, where I went to watch progress on that important tourist site, Notre Dame. You can just see in my photograph the scaffolding around the missing spire, which was only added around 1844 by Viollet-le-Duc to replace the one removed in 1786.  Also did some reconnaissance work at The Hôtel de Lauzun, on the quai d'Anjou of the île Saint-Louis; this private mansion house was designed by  Charles Chamois in 1667.

Now updating my web-site in preparation for the new academic year. Please take a look at the new links from there to teaching resources and research publications.
