Brick-work is so common that we don't give it a second thought. What could be less interesting than a brick? But brickwork evolved to meet the needs of society, and over the centuries it has continually responded to changing needs, technology and fashions. The history told by brickwork is all around us. It is written in the buildings that you can see any day, and if you can understand the language in which it is written, you can read the buildings history.


John Harrison is passionate about bricks, their history and what they can tell us about our past. Others may collect stamps - John collects bricks!
