THE MAKING OF DOWNTON ABBEY, Presented by Landscape Historian, Barbara Geiger

The soap opera began hundreds of years before Edith wrote her letter to the Turkish ambassador!

THE MAKING OF DOWNTON ABBEY, Presented by Landscape Historian, Barbara Geiger

 Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

The soap opera began hundreds of years before Edith wrote her letter to the Turkish ambassador! Yet the aristocratic way of life that had evolved at places like Downton Abbey was nearly ruined by the time we first meet the Crawleys in 1912.

 

How did a few families come to own so much English property? Why did Robert’s family need him to marry an heiress like Cora? And why do places like Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle in real life) look the way they do?

 

Join Barbara Geiger for a slide lecture and learn about the landscape designers, land ownership patterns and inheritance laws that produced great estates like Downton, and why radical changes were inevitable.
