Don't miss out on Winter School 2017, a brand new offering from Extra-Mural Studies. Over forty lecturers present the latest research on genetics, healthy ageing, archaeology and astronomy.  Questions are asked and answered: How can tree identification be made easy? Why do we have hair and treat it so weirdly? Why is sleep so important? What artistic treasures lie in St.Petersburg? What brilliant books have I missed out on?  How did a pushy Welsh adventurer start the modern history of Africa?  What craft lies at the heart of J.M.Coetzee's fiction?  When did ivory trade start in Africa? How does Muslim personal law square with women's constitutional rights?  Course information and booking forms available here from 24 May.
