Abstract :
According to current opinion, barrel-vaulted roofs developed from the north-west European common rafter roof. The Carlisle example was built ca.1355. Parallel developments on the continent are explored and their characteristic features identified. Contemporary links with Flanders and Normandy are of particular significance, but the medieval term still used to describe such vaults in Francophone Europe derives from Norse carpentry, and documentary and architectural evidence seem to confirm an earlier contribution from northern Europe. The development of Hanseatic trade in Baltic oak induced further changes from the 14th c. ;
