Phillip Lindley FSA, Founding Director of the Centre for the Study of the Country House, will deliver a trio of lectures based on his current research for a Study Day at Lamport Hall, Northamptonshire, on Tuesday 11 June 2013

The first lecture, on 'The Howard Monuments at Thetford and Framlingham: Tudor Sculpture and Space Science' springs out of his current research project, funded by the Science and Heritage Fund. 3D laser scanning is being utilised to dismantle and reassemble the great Tudor Renaissance monuments to the Howard family at Framlingham in Suffolk, with surprising results. The second lecture, on 'Roubiliac and the Montagu Monuments' considers the magnificent monuments at Warkton in Northamptonshire by the French sculptor Louis François Roubiliac, undoubtedly the greatest sculptor to work in eighteenth-century England.  Some archival discoveries, not yet published, enable him to rewrite the history of these monuments and the building in which they stand.  Finally, and staying in Northamptonshire, the final lecture will discuss the formal gardens of Boughton House in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and what we know about their construction.  It will consider the gardens' original layout and changes in their design during the eighteenth century as well as the present duke's revivification of the gardens, culminating in his recent project, 'Orpheus'.

The rather surprising connection between the subjects of this and the previous lectures will also be discussed!
