The day itself will begin at St Peter's at 11am with a series of talks from Mark's colleagues, students and friends. 

These talks will highlight the impact Mark had on those he taught and worked with, and will demonstrate how his academic research, particularly in the area of Byzantine History, highlighted his status as a world-leading academic.

The talks will be followed by a drinks reception at Corpus Christi College and Dinner at Oriel.
