 History and Architecture 

The programme of talks on History and Architecture consists of self-contained lectures to introduce the architecture, buildings, civil engineering works and archaeological sites that have had a significant effect in History and which today form some of the world’s most famous landmarks or places to visit. 

Each presentation covers the historical background to the site or project, the people involved and facts about their construction: It also covers the effect that it has had on its people and its relevance to history generally. The talks are delivered with the use of PowerPoint and include photographs and graphics taking the form of a virtual tour.
