A series of monthly lunchtime lectures held at the Wood Quay venue (see below for map) in conjunction with Dublin City Council.
Renowned experts will explain just how the invasions, battles, famines and plagues that medieval Dubliners had to deal with make this one of the most fascinating cities in Europe. This is a unique opportunity to discover how events like the arrival of the Vikings and the Anglo-Normans who built Dublin castle helped shape our city.
All lectures will take place from 1.05-1.45pm. No registration is necessary, entry is free and all are welcome!
