Royal Brick Gothic

It’s All in the Bricks

Roskilde Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke) was the first Gothic cathedral constructed of brick, a style which spread throughout Northern Europe. The building was built in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Cathedral has been the last resting place of Danish monarchs since the 15th century.

Having learned to lay bricks as a schoolboy as my father had a construction company I look at some of these huge, brick built buildings and wonder how long it took and how many brickies worked on the job.
