Excellent lecture, great slides, the mixture of looking at artefacts and buildings along with the historical context was really helpful

Happy to be the first to share my views on today's lecture. Ian Cockburn was so authoritative and interesting. Presentation was clear and informative. Slides excellent. Definitely inspirational.

Fascinating & well presented lecture with excellent slides. We have been to many of the places, sometimes more than once, but still learnt more today. Obviously his guided tours are a thing to dream of. One of the most outstanding lectures. Thank you.

I was mesmerised by today’s lecture! What a wonderful historical illustrated journey and thanks to my Ipad I was able to get up close to the detail of all the wonderful slides.
Lecture was inspiring, making me want to see more hopefully in time, thanks.

Yes, been to some of the places Ian talked about. I wish he’d been with us. Excellent talk, loads of information but well and entertainingly delivered.

Please can we have him back to talk about what he said was “another talk”!

One of the best ever!
