Abstract :
Town houses of bishops, nobles and kings were generally known to contemporaries as inns. No building in the London area except Westminster was called a palace before the 15th c. Nevertheless, some of the buildings were significantly distinctive to be considered as palaces. Looks at their purpose and how they functioned, using evidence from archaeological records and documentary sources. Winchester Palace, rebuilt in the early 13th c., has been the most investigated site. Examines the essential characteristics of these palaces which distinguished them from mere trading posts, manor-houses and residences. ;
