Podcast from Workshop Keynote Lecture

As many of you will already know the keynote lecture from the recent Chester Workshop, delivered by Prof. Howard Williams, was filmed by the University of Chester’s Learning and Information Services who have kindly turned the event into a podcast. In his lecture Prof. Williams discussed the workshop theme ‘audience’ from a number of angles, including his recent fieldwork conducted at the Pillar of Eliseg in north east Wales.


The keynote lecture was hosted at the historic St John the Baptist Church, which houses a considerable collection of Viking period sculpture. http://www.parishofchester.com/
