Art, Architecture and Museums Series - Living Under a Cathedral – Durham Architecture Since 1500

15th October 2018, 17:45 to 19:45, The Gala Theatre, Durham, Adrian Green

The City of Durham has been anchored around its cathedral church for over a thousand years. This talk explores the consequences of Henry VIII’s closure of Durham Priory in the 16th Century and the development of the City in the centuries since. It explains why we have the buildings that still stand today on Palace Green and around the Market Place and in the historic streets.

Adrian Green is an architectural historian at Durham University. He is the author of Building for England: John Cosin’s Architecture in Renaissance Durham and Cambridge (2016)
