Explore the life and times of Walter Morrison in this lecture series featuring academics, archivists and architects.
Founded in 1865 the Palestine Exploration Fund (PEF), an organisation with which Walter Morrison was intimately involved, was a pivotal force in the development of archaeological and scientific research in Ottoman and Mandate Palestine. This talk will look at the PEF in the 19th century as a society, its character, aims, and will explore the motivations of its early members and the organisation's place in Victorian society.
The speaker, Felicity Cobbing, is the Chief Executive of the Palestine Exploration Fund.
The lecture will be held as a hybrid event: both in-person and online via zoom. In-person and online tickets need to be booked separately. You are on the online event.
We are aware that there were some sound issues with the opening lecture in the Morrison series. We will take steps to remedy this before the autumn series.
This is a livestreamed event for those who cannot access the in-person venue of Giggleswick School Memorial Library. The zoom room will open at 19:15pm on the day.
Due to the historical nature of the venue it is not wheelchair accessible and is accessed via a flight of stairs up one story. Public toilets are available but they are also not accessible.
