The Building of England: Retrospect and Prospect 410 AD to 2000
In this the final lecture in his series on the history of English building Simon Thurley looks back. What can be concluded from a survey of 1,400 years of English architecture and social life? How English is English building and how are Saxon halls and modern skyscrapers intimately related?
This lecture will be followed by a book signing for Simon Thurley’s new book ‘The Building of England: The Story of a Nation Stone by Stone’.
