School Research Seminar Series

Listing of School of Archaeology & Ancient History research seminars 2018-19

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. The programme is organised by the postgraduate students and unless advertised otherwise the seminars are held on Wednesdays and begin with an informal get-together over tea and coffee in the School Foyer at 4.30pm, before moving to the lecture venue just before 5.00 pm to begin the talk. Whilst we try to keep to the advertised programme sometimes changes in speakers and the venue location do occur at short notice and it is best to check with the School Office or the coordinators if you are unsure.

The Research Seminars are open to everybody, including members of the public, so if you are interested in the advertised topic then please do come along. We would be delighted to see you there.

The coordinators are always interested in hearing from speakers who would like to come to the School and talk about their research at one of our seminar sessions. Please contact the coordinators listed below about this possibility and the availability of suitable dates.

Coordinators for 2018-19
