The 19th Viking Congress takes very seriously its duty to engage and inform the public, and recognises that there will be significant public interest in the regions where it is taking place. There will be three public lectures by distinguished academic specialists, one each in Bangor, Liverpool and Cumbria (see Programme).
In addition, where there may be any spare seating available in lecture theatres hosting the Congress sessions, this will be made available to public participants day-to-day, on a first-come first-served basis.
It is regretted that due to the need to restrict numbers for catering and transport purposes, only fee-paying Congress delegates are able to participate in the official dinners and field visits.
Further details of public events will be released in due course.
