Lunchtime Talk: 'Architectural History of Exeter in Building Stone' by Phil Collins

About

A wide range of building stones have been used in Exeter. We will explore the history of the use of different stones at different times across the city, from the Roman period to the 21st century and the buildings that have been constructed. The origins of the materials involved, and their geological history will be covered and the social and economic influences on the use of stone overtime will be explored. Historic building conservation issues posed by different stones will be touched on. Finally, a brief update will be given on Historic England's Strategic Stone Study and its programme of County Building Stone Atlases.
This event is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
