Vidimus readers are invited to the inaugural lecture by Professor Ian Freestone at University College London on 12 March 2013.
Together with colleagues based in York and Cardiff, Professor Freestone has recently completed a major programme of scientific analysis of medieval stained glass. The project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, brought together archaeological scientists, art historians and conservators in an attempt to ensure that the contexts of the glass analysed were fully understood. The result is a body of information that is significantly more comprehensive than has previously been possible. It is yielding new insights into glazing practices, the sources of raw materials, and the technologies of glass production and colouration. This important lecture will be held on Tuesday 12 March 2013 at 6.30p.m., in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Wilkins Building, University College London.
Admission is free but places must be booked via the UCL website.
