Andrew Ziminski is a stonemason living and working in what was ancient Wessex, and is the author of the brilliant Stonemason: A History of Building Britain.
He has three decades of hands-on experience with the tangible history of this country and has worked on some of the greatest and most interesting monuments in Britain; from using his skills to create a Stonehenge megalith, to the restoration of Roman ruins in Bath, to working on the tower of Salisbury Cathedral and the dome of St Paul’s in London. He is happiest, however, when working on a humble medieval country church.
“My school history lessons were focused around flat pages of facts, events and royal personalities, but for me it was the material aspects of the past, the tangible remnants left behind that were thrilling, and that it was these buildings and places, and learning how they worked, that really brought the past alive.”
On Sunday 5th September Andrew will guide us on a walk around Bath and unlock the secrets of our city inscribed in stone.
Please note, this event will now take place on SUNDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER. Later on the same date we have an evening talk with Ziminski which you can book for here. These are two separate events.
