Eligibility: All students on the Architectural History MA (Hons) and Architectural History Joint Honours degree programmes
Students on all years of the programme of Architectural History and the joint-honours programmes, are invited to sign up for an outing.
We shall board a bus and take ourselves to the Borders, to visit two or three of the great abbeys.
Our purpose is a double one.
We shall learn about medieval monasticism –its architecture and its effects in shaping the landscape that we pass through. Our principal guides will be Ian Campbell, who is very knowledgeable on the subject of Christian architecture, and John Lowrey, our expert on medieval sanitation. Particpants will gain an increased understanding of Monastic architecture in Scotland and of the monasticism’s part in shaping the cultural landscape of the Borders
The trip will also serve as a group meeting. The students on the Architectural History honours and joint-honours programmes can acquire a sense of being a cohort, with the possibility of support and assistance between students across all their years. Acquainted with one another, outside of year-groups, we’ll be better able to inform and assist one another.
