Online Talk: Death and dynasty

It's easy to think of funerary monuments as being primarily created by—and for—the particular individuals touched by a death. For the powerful and socially ambitious, however, some tombs and mausolea additionally aim to do something more. They were conceived as a means of binding different generations of a family together across time, thereby celebrating and sign-posting dynastic depth and identity.

This illustrated talk by John Goodall will look at examples of this practice across the full sweep of British history.   

John Goodall is Architectural Editor of Country Life and author of two award winning books including The English Castle (2011). John is also a Trustee of the MMT.

MMT is working in conjunction with Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery who are managing our online bookings for online talks.
