Taplow Talks

2022 will see the start of the Friends bi-monthly Taplow Talks. These take place on the third Thursday of the month starting with coffee and dessert at 7:00pm followed by the talk at 7:30pm.

Thursday, 20th January, 2022: Taplow Court

The history of the Taplow Court site from the prehistoric period up to the present day. The talk looks at the architectural history of the house and also includes the mound, old church and graveyard. Our speaker will first examine the pre house landscape going back the time when the area was inhabited in the Neolithic and later converted into hillfort in the Iron Age period. The talk will look briefly at the princely burial in the old churchyard and finally explore the development of the house from the seventeenth century to the present day. 

Our speaker is Elias Kupfermann. Elias is a professional historian and archaeologist. He runs his own heritage consultancy specialising in historic building and landscape research, archival and genealogical research. He has been researching and carrying out archaeological excavations in the grounds of Taplow Court for the last 20 years.
