Studies of some of our earliest standing houses are beginning to transform our understanding of how late medieval buildings were organised. The hall was the central space within a house, but we have often confused halls with chambers, the private rooms used for work and for sleeping. As we begin to pick apart the architecture of houses, we can begin to identify the purpose of each room and understand domestic life in the late Middle Ages.
