Dovetailed ledge and batten door
The purpose of this thesis has been to illuminate technical aspects associated with post-medieval dovetailed ledge and batten doors, i.e. dragspondører, in Norway. In order to answer questions regarding construction, design and material use, the method of investigation has been based on literature studies, field studies and practical craft experiments. Literature studies have provided basic knowledge of the subject, whereas field studies have further broadened the knowledge through observations of actual doors. 30 ledge and batten doors from 11 different locations in Norway have been documented. The complete documentation forms the basic source material for this survey. In the practical craft experiment, wherein a copy of a 18th century dovetailed ledge and batten door was made, further practical aspects on construction, design and materials use has been highlighted. Acquired knowledge from literature and field studies, as well as craft experiments, has led to a result that to a greater extent, highlights the technical aspects of dovetailed ledge and batten doors from the post-medieval period in Norway.
