Church Archaeology Events
In addition to our annual conference, we have now added a series of online evening lectures as regular events. These lectures are free and open to both members and non-members, but you must register on Eventbrite to attend the talks. After registering, you will receive an email (with reminders leading up to the event) with a link to access the talk at the scheduled time and date.
Lectures will also be archived on our YouTube channel and linked below, so if you are unable to attend, you can always watch any lecture back later at your leisure.
We hope you enjoy the talks, and please watch this space for future online and in-person events!
Our October online lecture has been rescheduled from 2022 with Dr Michael Carter and has sold out.
