If you’re in Nottingham next Wednesday evening, you may be interested in this year’s Maurice Barley Memorial Lecture. This year it is being given by Dr Philip Dixon. The lecture, entitled “Maurice Barley and the study of medieval buildings”, will be followed by a drinks reception.
The late Maurice Barley was the first professor of Archaeology at The University of Nottingham, a pioneer of buildings archaeology, in which the University maintains a strong and vibrant tradition, and one of the founders of York Archaeological Trust. Dr Philip Dixon, himself a very distinguished buildings archaeologist specialising in castles and cathedrals, taught for many years in the Department of Archaeology.
This event is free of charge and is open to all.
