Jutland, Minster mysteries and Design for Living

Yesterday was a great, if surreal, day. With yet another array of fascinating events, including a talk and re-enactment of the Battle of Jutland.

A talk in the undercroft at York Minster on the findings of recent excavations which revealed new evidence of York's landscape before the Minster was built. 

Throughout yesterday we had our 'Design for Living' day. A celebration of advances in technology, architecture and design.  The final event of the day was a panel discussion on the global grand challenges - with contributions from Andy Hopper (Institute of Engineering and Technology), Leo Hollis (author of Cities are good for you), Bill Price from WSP (the structural designers of London's Shard), Paul Newby (Shepherd Group), Martin Mayfield (Arup), Rodric Yates (IBM), last-minute special panelist Ross Noble (International Comedian), chaired by Rowland Atkinson.

'Stroking a mole'

Today we have the fantastic Seamus Heaney doing a reading, a panel debate on North/South Ireland, a discussion about Yorkshire's DNA and many more.  Check out the calendar for further info.
