Practical Epigraphy Workshop 2017
Lincoln, 20- 22 June

The Practical Epigraphy Workshop 2017 will take place this summer from 20 to 22 June at Lincoln. 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 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) and Abigail Graham (Warwick).

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. The workshop is open to those with or without previous epigraphic training and participants may choose to work on Latin or Greek texts. We anticipate that the course fee will be £150 for this three-day event including accommodation and some food.

To apply for a place please contact Maggy Sasanow (margaret.sasanow@classics.ox.ac.uk) for further details and an application form.

Closing date for applications and receipt of references: 10 April 2017.
