Mediaeval Castles & Great Houses

GROW logo




A 2 session course...12 hours for £48, concessions available.

James Wright is back with us again, following his very popular course on Historic Graffiti.

Using architectural history, buildings archaeology, art history and landscape studies the purposes, status and developments of mediaeval castles are scrutinised in depth. Drawing on practical experience of fieldwork and research this course is set against the backdrop of contemporary approaches to castle studies. Initially discussing the definition of what a castle is (and isn’t!), the architectural development of castles, great houses and palaces is traced. Subsequently, a wider approach is taken – looking at landscapes of lordship castle builders, and household staff in castle life.

To be eligible for this course you must be available for both sessions; this course starts on 4th July 2019 and continues on 11th May.

Tea, coffee & biscuits provided.
Booking is essential. For an enrolment form please email or telephone 01529 461499.
