For those of you who live and work in London and have an interest in Byzantium, you would certainly like the seminars run by the Department of Late Antique and Byzantine Studies at Kings’ College.
The Winter Term programme is now published. Events are free to all and will be held in room B6 on the Strand Campus. There is no need to register; just turn up by 5.30 pm. For a map of the campus click here.
The seminars last for about an hour and typically involve an academic presenting their latest research. There is an opportunity to ask questions. The audience is full of Byzantists, professional and amateur, including Judith Herrin.
