About this event

Timber-framed buildings are one of the characteristic features of the Essex historic environment.  They date from the 12th century to modern times.  This CPD lecture will be divided into two talks, one explaining how timber was sourced, converted, carpentered and assembled into buildings. The second will trace how medieval houses changed and developed as improvements were made and living standards became more sophisticated.  The talks should make it possible to recognise the essential features of timber-framed buildings, and how to analyse and date them.

How to book

Cost per person in £69 including a light lunch. More information or book.
