Historic Buildings and Places 2023 Annual Lecture 'Fake Heritage'

6th Dec, 2023
Farringdon, London or online

For in-person attendees, the event will be preceded by a wine reception beginning at 6pm. From the 50 replica Eiffel Towers located around the world to Saddam Hussein’s reconstructions of ancient cities, examples of forged or reconstructed heritage are widespread. Why do we emulate, copy or fake heritage? Why build a ruined castle, lay out a pretend town, or assemble our early ancestors from a jabberwocky of animal parts? Join us for the 2023 annual lecture, when we will be welcoming keynote speaker John Darlington, who will explore the reasons for physically reconstructing or falsifying the past.
