Masons and Carvers: Recent work at the Minster, building the Chapter House and cutting ‘the leaves’

The Leaves of Southwell Project Presents:
a talk by Professor Philip Dixon
9 February 2021
2.00pm on Microsoft Teams

The Chapter House has been subject to a series of excavations and studies over the last couple of years. Join Philip Dixon, Cathedral Archaeologist, as he explores what is now known of this fascinating building and discusses how our ancient ancestors created one of the greatest buildings of the 13th century – he’ll also show us how its very existence was due to decisions by a new Archbishop!
