Following on from the success of ‘On Pilgrimage’, Durham’s Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies is delighted to announce our new lecture series! Lessons from the Past: Cities, Heritage, Climate Change, Disaster and Risk. The series is created in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Durham’s UNESCO Chair.
