Church Monuments Society | Free online Spring lecture series
The Church Monuments Society is for everyone who is fascinated by tomb carvings, from medieval effigies to modern gravestones. We organise excursions and study days, publish a journal and a newsletter, and advise on conservation and interpretation of monuments. Now, we present our inaugural series of online lectures, as an introduction to the Society.
All talks are free to all. They will take place on Zoom and registration is via Eventbrite.
