We’ve had a request from Brendan O’Connor, he writes:
In November 1936 the Rhind Lectures of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland were delivered by Pedro Bosch Gimpera, then Rector of Barcelona University. He had to leave Spain following the Civil War and the lectures were never published, though Bosch intended that OUP would do so. The only record of the lectures appears to be reports in The Scotsman, written by Bosch himself while he was staying with Gordon Childe. Now The Scotsman has been digitised, I have transcribed the lectures and will present them in their British context at the forthcoming Anniversary Meeting of the Society.
Bosch is very well documented and his autobiography records contacts with various British archaeologists.
Brendan asks if any HARN member has come across Bosch in their own researches? If so either email me and I’ll pass it on or leave a message below and again I’ll see that Brendan receives it.
