English Architecture: Making England in the Shadow of Rome, 410-1130 – Simon Thurley

When the English nation rose out of the ruins of the Roman Province of Britannia, people remained obsessed with their Roman past. Seismic social and political change in 1066 barely upset the vision of patrons and architects and Rome remained England’s cultural capital driving the imagination of its architects.

This is a part if the series of lectures, ‘God, Caesar and Robin Hood: How the Middle Ages were Built’:

The English Middle Ages saw the construction of some of the world’s greatest buildings, structures that still shape our towns, cities and countryside and mould our national identity. These four lectures give a controversial new view of how medieval England was built starting with the departure of the Romans and ending with the Reformation.

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from  website. http://www.gresham.ac.uk
