    Stones, Bones & Thrones: the Design of 12th Century Canterbury Cathedral

    The eastern end of Canterbury Cathedral was famously rebuilt after a fire in 1174, following the martyrdom of Becket. It is sometimes called the first great ‘Gothic’ church in England – but is that correct? Architect, art historian, broadcaster and Chief Executive of the World Monuments Fund Britain, Dr Jonathan Foyle dissects what the Cathedral’s architecture tells us about Canterbury’s self-image, and how it was received by the next generation of cathedral builders.

    Presented in association with RIBA, Canterbury branch.
