How England was Built

The English Middle Ages saw the construction of some of the world's greatest buildings, structures that still shape our towns, cities and countryside and mould our national identity. This tradition continued into modern times and beyond. These lectures give a controversial new view of how England has been built starting with the departure of the Romans and ending in the present day. These lectures were delivered by Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage, in his role as Visiting Gresham Professor.
