21-23 May: Anglo-Saxon and Norman History & Architecture. Discover the remarkable and lost world of Anglo-Saxon art and architecture, visiting a selection of the very few well-preserved buildings from this distant era — and also witnessing the extraordinary transformation wrought by the Norman Conquest.

I am also teaching a course on medieval architecture at Oxford University Summer School for Adults (31 July- 8 August), and giving lectures and dayschools, mostly to NADFAS groups, in Spain, Derbyshire, Shrewsbury, the Cotswolds, Hampshire, Rutland, Ripon and Ross-on Wye. Contact me if you would like to attend one of these talks, or arrange a private tour of your own.
