Speaker: Victoria Lautman, Journalist, Independent Scholar
Explore India’s magnificent subterranean stepwells with author Victoria Lautman. These unique water-harvesting structures – marvels of architecture, engineering, and art – proliferated throughout the subcontinent for over a millennium, but eventually faded into oblivion by the 19th century. Victoria Lautman spent years documenting hundreds of the subterranean structures gathered together in landmark book, The Vanishing Stepwells of India.
In this virtual lecture, Victoria will trace the fascinating history, variety, and current state of India’s least-known edifices.
