Latest volumeNote from the VAG President
I apologise to members and authors for the very late appearance of Volume 46 of Vernacular Architecture, which resulted from serious production problems on the part of our new publishers, Taylor & Francis. I am afraid this delay was outside the control of the VAG editorial team. Procedures have been put in place with Taylor & Francis to ensure that a similar delay does not occur again.
Unfortunately, there is an error in the paper and online pdf version of Stephen Mileson's article, 'People and Houses in South Oxfordshire', where the penultimate paragraph is missing. The missing paragraph has been reinstated on the online HTML version. We have asked Taylor & Francis to rectify this as soon as possible.
