Abstract

In attempting to resolve the complicated archaeological problems and the design sources of the early Gothic choir of Pershore Abbey, this article examines issues that are fundamental to the understanding of early Gothic architecture in Britain. The issues discussed are the nature of the plan of the choir, whether it was intended to be vaulted or not, the most appropriate form for the elevation, and problems in consistency and inconsistency in taste.
