Joint with the Fortidsminneforeningen. This lecture replaced one by Prof Erla Hohler at late notice due to ill health.

The Lindsay-Fischer lectureship was founded in 1980 in honour of Ian Gordon Lindsay (1906-66) and his friend Gerhard Fischer (1890-1977), both for their work on the historic architecture of Scotland and Norway respectively and for their achievement in promoting cordial relations between Scottish and Norwegian Scholars.

The Lindsay-Fischer Lecture is given in Edinburgh and Aberdeen by a Scandinavian scholar (and now Kirkwall in Orkney since 2008 – supported by the Strathmartine Trust) and the Fischer-Lindsay Lecture is given in Oslo and elsewhere (as agreed) by a Scottish scholar.
