Description

Bricklaying was integral to the building and rebuilding of the City of London. One of the oldest livery companies in the City is the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers. Dr David Allen will discuss the history of the Company including its most famous son, Ben Jonson, as well as three of its masters who designed and built cathedrals, and the Company’s present-day role supporting the craft.

This talk is part of Guildhall Art Gallery’s exhibition, the Architecture of London.
