Talk: Building a Great Mediæval Cathedral @ The Eden Centre
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Speaker: Peter Petrie

Peter is a guide at Gloucester Cathedral therefore all cathedrals are of interest to him. The talk focuses on why there was a huge surge of building cathedrals and other churches between 1080 and about 1450 and then the surge died almost completely. Peter deals with some of the questions he gets asked as a guide, not just about Gloucester, but cathedrals in general.

Speaker: Dr Alan Wadsworth

Alan will start by explaining his involvement with farmsteads projects and then examine the different types of farm buildings and look at how they are organised and why. The methodology used to record and research farm buildings will then be outlined along with the progress made to date with the Worcestershire Farmsteads Project.
