Hei alle sammen!

 

As you would expect due to the Coronavirus situation, our face-to-face events on our 2021-22 programme are unfortunately either cancelled or postponed.  

 

However, we have worked hard to arrange a programme for the 2021-2022 season. Click here to see what we've managed to arrange for the new season.  We have some excellent online talks and events planned... the talks will be available via Zoom.  

 

Zoom allows us to do so much more... instead of venturing out on a dark cold winter evening, you can sit back in comfort and take part!  It also means that friends and family who live in other parts of the world, can also join you and enjoy the talks.

Once we are free of Covid or at least the restriction of meeting face-to-face, we plan to continue to use Zoom for those members who are either too remote to join or are unable to join for whatever reason!

 

During our 2020-2021 season, we did hold the annual Oddveig Rosegg lecture in February last year.  This was accomplished, at that time, by using the new kid on the block - Zoom.  Tim Clarkson who gave a lecture 3 years ago about the Strathclyde Vikings, presented his latest research on Aethelflead - the daughter of Alfred the Great. Read more about this in the Past Events... Aethelflead and the Vikings.

This year, 2022, we held the 21st Oddveig Røsegg lecture on the 16th of February on Zoom.  This year we were again fortunate to have an excellent speaker to talk to us about the Galloway Viking Hoard, Dr Martin Golberg, the lead curator for Viking hoards from National Museum of Scotland.  This was found in Galloway in 2014, and the wealth of information that has been discovered since then from 3 layers of treasure, is astounding.  For those who missed the event, we recorded the session and it is available to members. 
Just email us at scottishnorwegiansociety@gmail.com and we will send you a link to view the talk. 

 

Please keep checking this website and Facebook for any further developments.  

 

Stay safe and take care...

Hilsen/Regards
