The two lectures will run for about 20 minutes each with the first one starting starting at 7 p.m.. Participants will be able to join the meeting from 6.30 pm.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions using the ‘chat’ function.
Members who have given us their email addresses have been sent details of this event and as the number of participants will need to be limited places will be reserved on a first come first served basis so recipients of an email invite will need to book their place promptly. Enquiries to Gareth Huws.
Successful applicants for places will be sent an email nearer the date giving details of how to join the meeting.
A simple guide to using Zoom
If you have a poor internet connection you may find using a smartphone more successful as it uses much less bandwidth than a computer with a large screen. Turning your video off will also use less bandwidth.
The Gwynedd Archaeological Trust will be providing the Zoom hosting facilities. These will be organised for us by Andrew Davidson
