This unique archive is based on the collection of photographs taken by Dr. Donna Chaproniere and now housed at the History of Art Department of the University of Leicester. The photographs range from general views of the churches in the landscape, to exteriors and interiors, details of roofs, fonts, stained glass etc. This CD contains 1500 photographs from 300 churches in Suffolk and some adjoining areas of Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. They cover both medieval and post-medieval works. Accompanying each image is an explanatory caption written by a subject specialist. Introductory chapters provide information on the geological and economic significance of the area and a comprehensive bibliography, and there is a comprehensive glossary of architectural and art-historical terms. The collection can be accessed by tours based on geologically coherent groups of settlements, by the name of a settlement, by a map of the region or by context-based word-searching.
