This thesis describes four experiments on photoneutron
reactions in medium-weight nuclei, the first two carried out
with gamma radiation from (p,Y) reactions and the third and
fourth with bremsstrahlung from a 33 MeV electron synchrotron.
In chapter 1 is presented a brief review of photonuclear
reactions in the giant resonance region. Discussion is mainly
devoted to photon absorption, models for the giant resonance
and decay of the excited nucleus. Recent developments in
