An online lecture introducing the University of Liverpool's most recent research project, "Tracing The Past", unveiling some of the most remarkable features at Lincoln Cathedral.

Join Lincoln Cathedral virtually to explore some of the most remarkable features of medieval works of architecture -  the ribbon vaults spanning their interior spaces. 

For over nine hundred years, the ceilings and vault designs in churches and cathedrals have inspired worshippers and visitors alike, their eyes drawn heavenwards by these captivating constructions, prompting the question "how did they do that?". 

No corresponding texts or drawings survive to explain the 'how' questions, but digital methods now enable us to propose some educated answers. 

The Tracing the Past project at the University of Liverpool, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, has spent the past seven years recording and analysing vaults in England. This lecture will introduce the project and share some of its key findings in relation to Lincoln Cathedral.
