Hakon Hakonsson Lecture Featured

Largs & District Historical Society will hold the Hakon Hakonsson Lecture at the Valhalladrome, Viking Experience Theatre, Barrfields, Largs on Thursday 1st September at 8.00 pm. Admission by Donation.


The Hakon Hakonsson Lecture has been part of the Largs Viking Festival since 1990, during which time many highly respected academics have taken part. This year is no exception as we are delighted to welcome Professor Stephen Harding, BA MA DSc (Oxon), Ridder Første (Norway), Professor of Applied Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, Nottingham University, who will combine the specialist subjects of history and science to present ‘Science & the Vikings’. This is an excellent opportunity to hear of his latest research and findings and should give the audience a fresh insight into the Viking world. Seats available on a first come, first served basis.
