13th Annual Christopher Gilbert Lecture, Saturday 12 October 2013,
John Allan, BA, Mphil, FSA, Breton Woodworkers in Early Tudor Devon.
This year’s Annual Christopher Gilbert Lecture will be given by John Allan. Currently Archaeologist to the Dean & Chapter of Exeter Cathedral and Archaeological Consultant to Glastonbury Abbey, he has served as Joint Editor of the Society for the international journal Post-Medieval Archaeology, Member of Council of the Society for Medieval Archaeology, Member of Council of the Society of Cathedral Archaeologists, a Trustee of the Devon Historic Buildings Trust, and Editor (1984-1997) of the Devon Archaeological Society. For twenty years (1984-2004) he was Curator of Antiquities at Exeter Museum, and then Project Manager of Exeter Archaeology until 2011. He has long been a friend to the Regional Furniture Society; members who attended our annual conference at Exeter in 1993 will remember his lectures and guided tour of the Cathedral and city. He has been an avid fan of Brittany for many years and this has led him to research the subject of his lecture.
The lecture will be in the morning and there are plans visit some churches in the afternoon. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
