English architecture did not, of course, follow a rigid timeline, with clear divisions between periods and styles of building. What follows is an attempt to organize themes and philosophies of building styles in a rough chronological order, realising that many periods overlapped each other and many styles may well have been in use in the same region or even in the same building at the same time.
Prehistoric monuments- (e.g. stone circles, hillforts, et al)
