From its earliest days as a Roman legionary fortress, through the Middle Ages when the town grew as a major trading centre and became Henry VIII's northern capital; through the grandeur and decadence of Georgian York and into the nineteenth century when the city became an important railway hub, confectionery manufacturer and pioneer of social housing, to its current status as a majour tourist destination and sustainable city, York has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the rich architecture that has shaped this beautifully preserved city, famed for its Gothic cathedral. York in 50 Buildings explores the history of York through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the magnificent medieval York Minster to the first neoclassical building in Europe, this unique study celebrates York's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local architectural historian and photographer Andrew Graham guides the reader on a tour of the city's historic buildings and modern architectural projects.
