School of History, Classics & Archaeology

First Millennia Studies Group

The First Millennia Studies Group hosts regular seminars throughout the academic year, open to all.

Seminar description

The First Millennia Studies Group is a discussion forum for all aspects of archaeology in the first millennia BC and AD. There is no geographical limit but the majority of discussions centre around Scotland, although one of the major contributions of the group is the ability to provide the wider context for more focused investigations.

The group is open to anyone interested in the time period and the theory and methodology being employed in its research. You can follow the group on Twitter at @FirstMillennia

Time and location

Unless otherwise stated, the seminars begin at 18.00 on Tuesdays in either the Meadows Lecture Theatre or Appleton Tower (please see details below)  Please note that the main door to the building (for Meadows Lecture Theatre) is locked at 18.00, so please arrive in good time.

Evening seminars are likely to last for approximately 1.5-2 hours. All are welcome!
