These days we have only one or two meetings a year, sometimes including our AGM, in London, but instead prefer to get out and about, holding the remainder of our meetings around the country, often in churches where we can study brasses, incised slabs and other monuments in their architectural context. Although these meetings are very popular with members, many are unable to attend. So, from Spring 2005 we we will providing picture reports of our meetings, to supplement the full written reports that appear in MBS Bulletin. To see these reports, click on the Past Events bar at the top of the page.
Proceedings start at 2pm, unless noted below. Entry is free unless otherwise indicated and MBS members may invite non-member visitors to attend.
