Join Susan Kern, Executive Director of Historic Campus, as she discusses a surprising discovery found at the Wren Building in summer 2019. Managing water was a challenge in the 18th century too. In the summer of 2019, paving repair inadvertently exposed a vaulted brick drain in the Wren Courtyard, which prompted a flurry of unexpected archaeology and preservation planning to document and protect this massive early 18th century engineering project just under our feet.
