Historic Building Myth Busting - Beeston Library

Beeston Library, Beeston

Time -
Venue Beeston Library
Historian James Wright - a white male with long, light brown hair and a short beard - stands in front of a sandstone tomb

Go to any ancient building in Nottinghamshire and there will be interesting, exciting, and romantic stories presented to the visitor.

They are commonly believed and widely repeated – but are they really true? 

Archaeologist and author James Wright will be speaking about his new book Historic Building Myth-busting. Secret passages linking ancient buildings, spiral staircases giving advantage to right-handed defenders, ship timbers used for building, or blocked doors in churches to keep out the devil, James will explain the development of such myths and the underlying truths behind them.
