Next Lecture

Our next lecture is on Wednesday 7th September 2022, and is “The Lewis Chessmen and What Happened to Them”. Our lecturer is Irving Finkel who will take a personal look at the twelfth-century ivory Lewis Chessmen, which have bewitched the lecturer for some fifty-five years. Irving Finkel is a British philologist and Assyriologist working at the British Museum, and he has written several works of fiction for children.
