Question Roof Ventilation

Recently purchased a Georgian style house and I want to increase the attic ventilation. Now I have been reading that the best ventilation system is the ridge vent / soffit vent system.
But on this style of house there are no soffits. The question I have is what kind of venting systems would be recommended on this style roof. Any suggestions you have would be greatly
welcome.

Thanks

Arrow No soffits ??

Is it an older home with open rafters or is there no roof overhang at all ??

I have open rafters and just take out some of the "blocking" between the rafters and replace it with 1/4" wire mesh.

As for exhuast I would use wind turbines or a QUALITY, externally baffled, ridge vent

The turbines will be MUCH easier to install, material cost is about the same either way.

The ridge vent blends with the roofline better but requires removing a lot of ridgeline shingles and cutting the sheathing on the peak of the roof.
