School Research Seminar Series

cakes.JPG

The School of Archaeology and Ancient History holds regular Research Seminars during term time, presented by guest speakers or members of the School's own staff and student research community. Unless otherwise stated, seminars are held on Wednesdays and begin with an informal get-together over tea and themed foodstuff in the School Foyer at 16:30, before moving to the venue as advertised just before 17:00 to begin the talk. Please be aware that venues can be subject to late changes and it is best to check in the School office, seminar posters in the School or with the organising committee if you are unsure.

All are welcome! If you would like to join us for tea and cake, please e-mail Manolis Pagkalos [mp482@le.ac.uk] in advance.

We are always looking for willing volunteers to bake themed cakes for any of the receptions, so if you think that’s a role you would like to fulfill do email us. There will be a small prize at the end of the academic year for the best cake.

The series is coordinated by an organising committee of the School's research students.
