Course descriptionThis course is in two parts that run concurrently throughout the semester. The core lecture course is a survey of Scottish architecture from mediaeval times to the present day. Alongside that, the students will take a seminar looking in more detail at case studies of real conservation projects, to provide deeper insight into certain areas of the core material, e.g. a particular building type. This will also bring their studies up to date in that this part of the course will also discuss the conservation of historic structures.

Additional Information
Academic description The combination of these two types of study will provide the students with a very thorough grounding in Scottish Architectural history but will also begin to develop skills in 'reading' buildings and in learning how to go about researching a building, using a multiplicity of source materials. The seminar series is intended to bring into play skills that will be useful for anyone intending to pursue a career in the conservation and heritage fields and will alert students to further possibilities for study and/or should make them more employable by bodies like Historic Scotland and English Heritage. In 2010-11 the seminar will be taken by a research fellow who is extremely eminent in this field.
