Department of History of Art
Friday 9 September 2011, 10.00AM
What might the National Archives hold of interest to architectural historians and others working concerned with recovering the past? This talk outlines five centuries of records of central government interest in buildings and their designers, in Britain and around the world. Rose Mitchell is map archivist at the National Archives, currently running a project on drawings of public buildings. She has also written and spoken on: early castle plans as part of her specialism in medieval and sixteenth century maps and plans, and on military maps, cadastral surveys, sea charts, maps during the colonial period, and maps for international boundary and domestic rights of way research. She will be giving a talk and is happy to take questions regarding the extensive holdings at the National Archives at Kew. All welcome!
