The 2017/2018 lecture series

The 2017/2018 lecture series of the First Millennia Studies Group begins on the 3rd October.

Most meetings are in the Meadows Lecture Theatre in Edinburgh University (Old Medical School, Teviot Place, EH8 9AG). Note that the main door to the building is locked at 18.00, so if you arrive late you will probably not be able to get in.

The venue for a meeting in Glasgow will be confirmed in due course.

NB evening seminars are likely to last for approx. 1½ – 2 hours.
