Each year, Glasgow Archaeological Society organises and hosts a series of monthly lectures by speakers from Britain and abroad, which runs from October through to April. We are now pleased to announce our new lecture programme for 2018-2019.

Since its inception, the Glasgow Archaeological Society Lecture Programme has offered a diverse range of topics on all things archaeological – from the prehistoric to the post medieval period. The lectures usually take place in the Glasgow University’s Boyd Orr Building, in University Avenue on the third Thursday of each month, starting at 7.30pm, with the exception of our Dalrymple Lecture Series. 

All of our lectures are free to attend, and are open to members and non-members alike.
