London Travel course-application and additional fees required. See Medieval Art and Architecture in England. This course is an on-sight faculty-led study trip to England. The purpose of the course is to bring students to see as many of the remarkable works of medieval art and architecture in and around London as possible in one month. There is no substitute for viewing works in person. All assignments will be based on first-hand observations of works. We will view manuscripts in the British Library, arms and armor, delicate ivories, and gold sculptures in the British Museum, and painting in the National Gallery. We will visit Westminster Abbey, St Bartholomew-the-Great, Temple Church, Southwark Cathedral, and the great Guildhall, and stroll along Chaucers, Walk to Work all while viewing the medieval remainders along the way. We will dig for artifacts on the banks of the Thames River, and will see a play at the Globe Theater. We will take a side trip to Cambridge, where we?ll have exclusive access to manuscripts in the Parker library, Corpus Christi College, and Trinity College Library. We will hear the choir sing medieval songs in Kings College Chapel. We will visit the Round Church to see the green men, and will have tea and scones across from St Benets, the only surviving Saxon structure in the city. We'll also visit the majestic Salisbury Cathedral and will pop over next door to Stonehenge.
