Join us for a lunchtime dive into church architecture, interiors and furnishing styles and how to date them.
Churches are fascinating and ancient buildings. Having been constructed, extended and adapted over hundreds of years, a single church can contain styles, materials and interior decoration, from Saxon right through to the twenty-first century.
Looking at and trying to understand a church can be an adventure of investigation. But where do we start? How do we tell the different styles like Early English and Perpendicular or identify a Victorian restoration from a medieval original.
Join our panelists while we explore churches, their architecture and interiors. We will look at how they changed over time, how to date them and how to spot ancient survivals.
When: Wednesday, 31 March 2021 Time: 12:00 lunchtime
