Institution University of Cambridge
Department Institute of Continuing Education

The course, devised in collaboration with English Heritage (now Historic England), is unique in combining British architectural history with practical tuition in interpreting building fabric. It provides an overview of architectural evolution and an awareness of the principal approaches to the exploration of architectural evidence. It also sets out to train students in the rigorous and effective use of primary sources, preparing them for careers in historic building research, recording, assessment and curation, or in suitable cases, for progression to doctoral-level research.
