17-12-13 York Minster film

A new film showcasing research on the stained glass and stonework of the East front of York Minster has just been launched as one of the University of York's 'Impact@50' case studies. The film (which can be viewed on YouTube) features Dr Kate Giles, current York Minster Archaeology Fellow and Stuart Harrison, Minster Archaeologist and Honorary Research Fellow of the Department and students from the MA Archaeology of Buildings programme. The film also highlights the work of Sarah Brown, of the History of Art Department leading research on the Great East window, and Janet Parkin, an undergraduate archaeology alumna now working in the Glaziers' Trust. 

A display of current research on the East End which also showcases Stuart's work on the reconstruction of the Minster's architectural development over time, forms the focus of the multi-million pound York Minster Revealed project: http://www.yorkminsterrevealed.org/home.html
