The Society’s autumn series of Monday night lectures kicks off on 25 September with a talk from Alasdair MacLeod and Professor Andrew Goudie on the Society’s film collection.
The lecture will introduce the collection and take a deeper look at footage of the first east-west crossing of the Libyan Desert captured on film. Accompanying the lecture will be a display of items linked to desert exploration from the Society’s Collections.
The Society has an extensive collection of films, housed at the British Film Institute (BFI), which represent a unique record of British scientific exploration and geographical documentary film-making from 1922 to 1979. With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the BFI has been digitising the Society’s film collection, and all the films will be available to watch on the BFI online player.
The Society’s Monday night lectures are open to all Fellows and members, so if you are not already a member, join now to enjoy the benefits.
This illustrated talk will explore the mental maps of medieval Christians through the great medieval Christian world maps.
