Event description
A series of talks hosted by Friends of Dundonald Castle SCIO (SC031541) to raise funds for our small, independent charity.

About this event

This month we will be joined by Blythe Paterson, PhD Student, Medieval History & Archaeology University of Glasgow (and Education Officer, FoDC).

"This talk will cover the evolution of the tower house in the British isles, focusing largely on the historical events which led to the trend of tower-house building in the conflict regions of England, Ireland and Scotland over the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

We will also discuss the varying designs and layouts these towers take – specifically across Scotland, look into why we believe certain areas are more densely populated with tower houses, and finally, mull over the cultural and political circumstances which caused the tower house to remain an important fixture in Scottish architecture throughout the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries."

This is an online talk which will be held using the Zoom platform. To ensure everyone has access , we are not asking for an upfront ticket cost for this event. However, if you can, we would appreciate a small donation towards the ticket price. On site, tickets would usually be £5.

This series of talks is being hosted as a small fundraiser for Friends of Dundonald Castle SCIO. To find out more about who we are and what we do, head over to our website: www.dundonaldcastle.org.uk

You will only be able to purchase 1 ticket per email account. You will be sent the zoom link after you have reserved your ticket.  Please Note: If you purchase a Ticket with Donation, you do not need to also reserve a FREE ticket.

As always, if you have any questions or comments please get in touch at events@dundonaldcastle.org.uk
