Place-name expert Professor Andrew Breeze is giving the annual James Williams Lecture in Dumfries on 2 December 2011. His topic will be ‘The Names of Rheged’.
This event is organised by the Dumfries & Galloway Natural History & Antiquarian Society who will be publishing the lecture as a paper in their Transactions. In the meantime, those of us who are unable to attend will hopefully be able to read a summary on the Society’s website at a later date.
Information about time and venue can be found via this link.
For background information on Rheged I recommend Michelle Ziegler’s blogpost in her Lost Kingdoms series.
