Each year, Glasgow Archaeological Society organises and hosts a programme of monthly lectures by speakers from Britain and abroad, which runs from October through to April.

Since its inception, the Glasgow Archaeological Society Lecture Programme has offered a diverse range of topics on all things archaeological – from the prehistoric to the post medieval period — and our programme from 2019-2020 is no different.
