    Although I have passed this building many times, I have never been to the lecture theatre.Just wondering is it handy enough to find?
    In case I don't get there in plenty of time to allow for 'getting lost'.

      Hi Orla, I believe it is quite straightforward, but go early to get a place!

    Would love to see inside this building, it has a special interest for me as My best friend was a graduate archaeologist on the wood quay site & I was privileged to visit the site. I will do my best to attend
