BACAS: A career in ruins
Thu 11 January, 2024 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Andrew Ziminski, Heritage Stonemason, has worked on a wide range of monuments from the earliest surviving structure in England -The West Kennet Long Barrow to the Roman Baths and The Royal Crescent in Bath and so on through countless Medieval Churches and Cathedrals to the monuments of the Industrial Revolution.
In unpicking these monuments, Andrew has closely studied the work of his predecessors and discovered how they used their tools, what techniques they used to quarry, dress, and square up a variety of stone and how successive periods used different types of lime mortar for fixing.
