Online Archaeological Discussion Evenings

Since March 2020, NOSAS has organised a series of online Archaeological meetings. Speakers make a short presentation on a subject of interest to them followed by a Q and A session. Upcoming meetings can be found on the What's On page, or below.

Most of the events have been recorded, so that you can watch them again, using the links below. Guidance on how to use Zoom can be found here. Note that the Q&A part of the evening is not part of these recordings. Should you specifically want to watch that part, please contact roland.spencerjones@gmail.com.
