Online Archaeological Discussion Evenings

Before Covid-19, NOSAS used to meet during the darker months for Monthly Archaeological Discussion evening meetings, appropriately known as "MAD Meetings". From March 2020, we had to go online. Speakers make a short presentation on a subject of interest to them followed by a Q and A session. As of 2022 we have been able to offer in person talks again, but have continued to supplement these with online and hybrid options. Upcoming meetings can be found on the What's On page.

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.
