The Glasgow Archaeological Society lecture programme is now in place for the coming academic year, and is outlined below.

Due to the current global events we are unable to hold our lectures in the usual venue at Glasgow university. For the foreseeable future all of the lectures in this this year's programme will be broadcast online via Zoom, on the third Thursday of the month at 7.30pm (unless otherwise stated). As usual, they are all free of charge and you do not have to be a member of Glasgow Archaeological Society in order to attend.

If you would like to join us for any of the lectures in this year's programme you will need to download Zoom to your device if you have not already done so. Before the lecture begins you will also need to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for an invitation and the password to the event. You will then be emailed a link, a meeting code, and password for the lecture on the day, which you can join from 7.15pm that evening.

Please be aware that space may be limited, so invites will be sent out on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to GAS members first and foremost.

If you are unable to attend any of the lectures on the evening then don't worry! They will be made available on Youtube (with links from our website) after the event. 

Please refer back to this website or our Facebook page for any updates and further details.
