THE University of Chester history and archaeology department is giving members of the public the chance to join some of its students in attending a range of lectures about military history.
As part of its annual visiting lecture programme, the university is working in conjunction with The Society of Thirteen and The Cheshire Military Museum to host the lectures at the Grosvenor Museum, Chester.
The series of four lectures, titled Military Miscellany, will cover a range of subjects to do with the history of different aspects of military practice, and will involve some of the world’s top lecturers in the subject visiting Chester.
Dr Keith McLay, the head of history and archaeology, said: “We are delighted to be able to have such high-profile lecturers in the subject come to Chester to speak to our students, and also members of the public.”
The programme started this week and will run for four weeks.
All lectures will begin at 7pm and take place in the Grosvenor Museum Lecture Theatre, 25-27 Grosvenor Street, Chester.
Admission is £4 per lecture or £10 for all four. For tickets, contact Mike Nichol on 0151 346 1017, firstname.lastname@example.org, or pay on the door.
Admission for students, graduates and staff of the University of Chester, and to Friends of the Cheshire Military Museum, is free.
