Laura is thrilled to have received a Postgraduate Certificate in Architectural History, passing with distinction at the University of Oxford. Her study of medieval timber-framed buildings in Surrey was warmly received by course leader Dr Paul Barnwell. Laura's thesis explored patterns in the adaptation of medieval plan forms for early-modern living, focusing on the insertion of chimneys into hall houses that were formerly open to the roof with an unenclosed fire in the centre of the house. Her findings for Surrey were compared to existing research for Hampshire, Sussex and Kent, and builds on published work by the DBRG Surrey.
