Practical Epigraphy Workshop 2023
Corbridge & Chesters, Northumberland, 25-29 March
The Practical Epigraphy Workshop 2023 will take place from Saturday 25 to Wednesday 29 March at Corbridge and Chesters, Northumberland. With the help of expert guidance participants will gain direct experience of the practical elements of how to record and study inscriptions in museums or in the field. The programme (see below) will include: the making of squeezes; imaging and measuring inscribed stones; and the production of transcriptions, translations and commentaries. Instructors will include Roger Tomlin (Oxford) Charles Crowther (Oxford), Olivia Elder (Oxford) and Henning Schulze (University of Lincoln).
The workshop is aimed primarily at graduates in any year and undergraduates who will be entering their third and / or final year of study next September, though we will consider applications from others who wish to develop hands-on skills in working with epigraphic material (those in full-time permanent employment may be asked to meet the full cost of participation: please ask for details). The workshop is open to those with or without previous epigraphic training and participants may choose to work on texts in either Latin or Greek. The course fee for student and post-doctoral participants will be £250 for this five-day event including shared accommodation and food (from the Saturday evening to the Wednesday morning).
Please note: The closing date for applications is Friday, 27 Jan at 12 noon. You can find the application form here.
