At the centre of early mediaeval Glasgow may lie a Roman settlement possibly known as Cathures. The early street layout is remarkably regular. How compelling is this? Gordon Wyllie will explore all the evidence in this fascinating lecture. 

All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
