Historian and author Dan Cruickshank is a leading expert on architecture and historic buildings, and has travelled and written extensively on the history of art and architecture. As a regular presenter on the BBC, his documentaries delve into the rich and fascinating history of the world’s architectural and cultural treasures, with one of his best-loved television series being Around the World in 80 Treasures.
