We will introduce the rich physical evidence for the ubiquitous trends in interior decoration and furnishings – such as wall paintings, and other fixed decorations, ceramics and cheap print – and examine why these material forms are largely absent from lists of household goods.

Publicity about Chichester’s heritage often emphasizes its Roman and Georgian ‘roots’, but much of the layout of the historic city, as well as some of its most important buildings, date from the Middle Ages. This study day explores the historical and archaeological evidence for Chichester and its people from the early Middle Ages to the early 1600s, when it was a tiny walled city set in a rural landscape (the ‘mere village’ slur came from a late 12th-century chronicler called Richard of Devizes). The afternoon will be spent in Chichester.
