Munch and Listen lunchtime talks programme
Monday 24 April, 12.15pm
Join us for our free lunchtime talk with Ian Betts, Senior Specialist (Building Materials) from MOLA 
(Museum of London Archaeology).
Ian will show us the beautiful examples of various designs and types of tin-glazed (Delftware) used in London houses over 400 years. Dating from the mid-15th to early 19th century, these will include floor tiles imported from Valencia and Seville in Spain, Antwerp in Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as examples produced in London and Liverpool, made to decorate walls in these large houses. His talk will be illustrated by the many finds from the Museum of London collections. He will examine how such tiles were used and the buildings in which they can still be found, including a house in Highgate and examples (now in Bruce Castle Museum) originating from a fire-surround in Dial House, Tottenham.
Ian is the author of the book 'Tin-glazed Tiles from London' by Ian M. Betts and Rosemary J. Weinstein (Museum of London Archaeology, 2010).
All welcome.
Doors open at 12 noon. Talk begins at 12.15pm.
Bring your lunch. Refreshments available.
Kindly supported by the Friends of Bruce Castle.
