Architecture Through the Ages
12th November 2024
Presented by John Sherlock
Following a colourful timeline (which every audience member receives), John takes you on a complete journey through European architectural development. The story begins in ancient Greece and subsequently develops through the Roman and Byzantine periods. Medieval Europe then goes through Romanesque and Gothic styles before the Renaissance revives classicism. But as industrialism takes hold medieval styles get revived again - John identifies some of the principal influences.
