This dissertation examines a little known collection of 15th century allegorical wall paintings in Ellys Manor, a small, privately owned and well preserved English wool-merchant’s house in Lincolnshire. It shows that using modern methods of investigation, laser scanning, digital measurement and good scholarship architectural studies can help interpret rare survivals like this and bring them to wider audiences with the aim securing their long term conservation and preservation.
