Unfortunately, due to circumstances outwith our control we have had to cancel this event at short notice.  We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Lecture by Dr Colleen Batey FSA Scot (Institute for Northern Studies, University of Highlands and Islands)

It is 20 years since the seminal volume Vikings in Scotland: an archaeological survey was published by Edinburgh University Press (EUP) under the authorship of James Graham-Campbell and Colleen Batey. This period has brought many changes to our understanding of the Scandinavian presence in Scotland, some through the results of targeted research agendas, others through chance finds during field survey and metal detecting. The published integration of all aspect of archaeological endeavour – both on and off-site, has provided a unique opportunity to re-assess the impact of this period which spanned essentially 600 years.
