Forthcoming Lectures



Professor Hempel’s lecture will be followed by a Book Launch of the memoirs of the Late Dr Nicholas Slope, a former Honorary Secretary of the AIAS.

The memoirs are contained in four books which broadly encapsulate Dr Slope’s contribution to the history of the Royal Navy during the time of Nelson, his archaeological career in the Southern Levant, a narrative of the excavation in Aboukir Bay, Egypt, to rescue the graves of British military personnel and their families, and finally his analysis of the key turning points in British military history during the last three centuries.

Nelson’s Navy: Recruitment, Promotion, Discipline and Death, Archaeological Memoirs from the Holy Land, Excavating Nelson’s Heroes: Their Rescue and Recovery, Great British Battles, 1704-1982
