D. M. Field is a freelance writer on history and the arts and the author of many books on the decorative arts and architecture, including Cathedrals of the World, Great Palaces and Castles and Castle Towns of Great Britain. His passion for architecture dates from the age of ten when he visited a Romanesque abbey. Although travel is among his interests, he confesses that he has not seen every building in this book, a few of which, even today, are all but inaccessible.
