A Practical Epigraphy Workshop is taking place for those who are interested in developing hands-on skills in working with epigraphic material. The workshop is aimed at graduate students, but other interested parties are welcome to apply, whether or not they have previous experience. With expert tuition, participants will learn the practical aspects of how to record and study inscriptions. The programme will include the making of squeezes; photographing and measuring inscribed stones; and the production of transcriptions, translations and commentaries. Space on this workshop is limited by the size of the available study area to eight places, and on this occasion we shall be offering Roman epigraphy only. Instructors will include Roger Tomlin and Charlotte Tupman.
Course fees will be in the region of £70 – £90 but, as in previous years, we hope to be able to offer a number of generous bursaries. Participants on the course will stay in Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Corbridge (we will book this for you but regret that the cost is not included in the course fee).
If you wish to apply for a place on this course, or for further details, please contact Charlotte Tupman by e-mail as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications is 6th May.
The Practical Epigraphy Workshop is sponsored by the British Epigraphy Society, an independent ‘chapter’ of the Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine.
