Looking for a book describing how to date a building using physical evidence in the building itself.

I took a class in college on the subject, but can't find my notes and have had no luck with google. In the class we discussed date ranges for different nail types, date ranges for brick manufacturing methods and how to recognize them, when decorative molding shapes changed, date ranges and how to recognize saw marks on wood, that kind of thing. I am not interested in architectural style guides at all.
