Dr Simon Thurley is a leading architectural historian, a regular broadcaster on television and radio and is the Chief Executive of English Heritage, the Government’s principal advisor on the historic environment in England.

In 2010 and 2011, Dr.Thurley served as the Visiting Professor of the Built Environment at Gresham College, and gave a series of lectures entitled God, Caesar and Robin Hood: How the Middle Ages were Built. The English Middle Ages saw the construction of some of the world’s greatest buildings, structures that still shape our towns, cities and countryside and mould our national identity. These four lectures give a controversial new view of how medieval England was built starting with the departure of the Romans and ending with the Reformation.
