First Millennia Studies Group
The First Millennia Studies Group (FMSG) is a discussion forum for all aspects of archaeology in the first millennia BC and AD in Scotland and beyond. FMSG is open to anyone interested in the time period and the theories and methods of its study. The Committee hopes it offers a useful forum for trying, developing and discarding ideas at a live event; a testing ground, which we feel cannot be achieved by a more anonymous online audience and the possibility of being recorded. This distinguishes FMSG from other research seminars.
