This standard work provides practical guidance on appropriate methods of conservation and repair of earth buildings using traditional materials. It is the first major book on the subject of earth building since Clough Williams-Ellis and the Eastwick-Fields published Building in Cob, Pisť and Stabilised Earth in 1947. It deals with the qualities and characteristics of clay and chalk and the way in which they have been used to construct buildings. Advice is given on soil analysis, the philosophy of repair techniques and the factors to be considered before altering, converting or extending an earth building.
