Autumn Aberdeen Heritage Lectures 2019

26 Sep 2019

Aberdeen plays host to some of the leading conservation minds as part of Aberdeen Heritage Lectures.

Tim Meek, a pioneer in the use of lime harls on traditional buildings in Scotland in C20th kicks off the Autumn mini-series on Wednesday 9 October with his intriguingly titled "From Walling Brick to PhD. What's the point?" about the use of lime mortars and traditional external surface finishes in Scotland.

Speakers Dr. Peter Burman and Robert Grant appear later in the series. Peter will talk on the highly influential Victorian heavy-weight thinker John Ruskin on the 200th anniversary of his birth year.

Robert Grant considers the rise and fall of the designed landscape in Scotland in a talk entitled "Paradise Lost."
