School Research Seminar Series
The School of Archaeology and Ancient History holds regular research seminars in 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 4.30pm, before moving to the Bennett Building, Lecture Theatre 8 (unless otherwise stated) at around 5pm to begin the talk.
We are always looking for willing volunteers to bake themed cakes for any of the teas, 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 term for the best cake.
