Anyone who is interested in the life histories of the buildings that surround us, and what those narratives can tell us about people past and people present.
This course will offer an opportunity to learn how to stop, take notice, and understand the often, complex stories of the historic buildings that surround us. We just need to learn to read and understand their language to begin to enjoy the fascinating tales that buildings can tell! The archaeology of standing buildings enables us to learn about the lives faced by those who built and occupied them and allows us to reflect upon and value our relationship with our architectural surroundings today. This will be a guide-led visit and discussion event. Please wear suitable clothes for the weather and comfortable walking shoes.
