Wednesday 4 February An Introduction to British Architectural History / ​Historicist Britain Jeremy Musson, architectural historian, author and broadcaster has devised an enjoyable and informative introduction to British architectural history by looking at the works of select groups of influential architects working in the late seventeenth century, the early eighteenth century, the late eighteenth century and the nineteenth century; he uses the work of these architects to help navigate the complex story of architecture in each of these key periods. As a former architectural editor of Country Life there will be an emphasis on country house design, but this will be related to wider themes of public, urban and ecclesiastical work.
