Windsor Castle -

The Greatest Castle in the World

1.30 pm,  Monday  February 4th 2018

Windsor is a vision, and its survival alone is remarkable, but its immense stories remain embedded in a bewildering array of arts. This talk, by the author of the Royal Collection's substantial new guidebook to Windsor Castle, concentrates on how Windsor was made, and by whom, drawing on evidence to illustrate the royal apartments, St George's Chapel- and the legendary Round Table building.

Lecturer:    Dr. Jonathan Foyle was Chief Executive of World Monuments Fund Britain for eight years, and a Curator of Historic Buildings at Hampton Court for as long, during which time he took his 2002 PhD on reconstructing Wolsey's palace. He is a frequent feature writer for the Financial Times on issues of architecture, history and craft, and is approaching his fourth published cathedral monograph: Canterbury, Lincoln, Lichfield - now Peterborough. A presenter of numerous television series including BBC4's Henry VIII: Patron or Plunderer? and BBC2's Climbing Great Buildings, he lectures frequently on a range of art-historical topics. He brings teaching experience as a former Course Director for the University of Cambridge Summer Schools and is an Honorary Professor in Conservation at the University of Lincoln.
