An Introduction to Historic Building Recording

This study day, based at the West Stow Anglo-Saxon village, provides a practical introduction to the methods and techniques used to record the fabric, fixtures and fittings of historic buildings. Following a class-based introduction to the subject, the rest of the day will be spent getting hands-on practice recording the reconstructed buildings in the Anglo-Saxon village itself. These buildings are actually an archaeological experiment testing different ideas about how the Anglo-Saxons built their houses, as part of which they are recorded at regular intervals, so the session also forms an important part of the on-going work at the village too.

The session is free and is being run as part of the Breaking New Ground Project, but places need to be booked via EventBrite using this link:
