A reminder of tonight's talk by Dr Kristin B Aavitsland

A reminder that Dr Kristin Aavitsland will give the Lindsay Fischer lecture in Kirkwall tonight,  Wednesday 12th June in the St Magnus Centre at 7.30pm. This lecture exchange between Scotland and Norway is arranged by The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland assisted locally by Orkney Heritage Society and is made possible by generous support from the Strathmartine Trust.

Entitled 'Medieval heritage in twentieth-century Norway: Ideologies, conflicts, practices', the lecture will be based on Dr Aavitsland's biography of Harry Fett (1875-1962), a prolific researcher on Norwegian medieval art and national antiquarian from 1913 to 1946.
