Abstract

This book examines the historic lunatic asylum from an interdisciplinary perspective, employing methods drawn from archaeology, social geography, and history, to create a holistic view of the built heritage of the asylum as a distinctive building type. This study combines critical analysis of the architecture, material remains, and historical documentary sources for lunatic asylums in England and Ireland.
