Join us, and Dr Julie E Bounford, as she delivers an illustrated talk online:

The Curious History of Labyrinths & Mazes

The curious history of mazes does not run in a “steady straight” line, but, instead, begins with the labyrinth: a simple motif that is no doubt familiar to us all. With its true origins still shrouded in mystery, the chronicle of the labyrinth, and more recently of the maze, spans the past four thousand years, taking many twists and turns. It is a truly fascinating social history. We will explore famous examples worldwide including the turf maze, Julian’s Bower at Alkborough in North Lincolnshire, and we will briefly reflect on why mazes and labyrinths are today more popular than ever.

Date: Thursday 28th April 2022

Time: 7pm – a 45 minute talk with a Q & A afterwards
