The Pomáz Lab, an open-air archaeological site in Hungary welcomes visitors usually from summer to autumn. During the late autumn and winter months, when the site itself is seldom visited by the local public due to the less comfortable weather conditions, the Lab, in cooperation with the NGO called Friends of Pomáz (Pomáz Barátai), organized a series of lectures about the history, archaeology and local heritage of Pomáz. The lectures were held in a community centre in the town, and were regularly attended by an audience of 40–50 people. The talks covered a wide range of topics, and most of the invited speakers were locals themselves, involved in one way or another in the research of the local heritage and history of Pomáz and the closer region. All lectures were followed by a Q&A session and a short debate.
In the fall of 2019 the following lectures took place:
- 30 October 2019: “The Luppa Mausoleum.” Attila Szczuka discussed the life’s work of local architect Mihály Harmincz in connections with the recently discovered blueprints of the Luppa mausoleum, a local monument; Magdolna Ozorai discussed the new results of research into the Luppa family.
- 6 November 2019: “Old maps of the Pomáz area.” József Laszlovszky discussed the use of historical maps in the research of Pomáz’s development and transformation in the last 200 years.
- 20 November 2019: “Murder in the Pilis?” József Laszlovszky talked about the possible connections between burial monuments found in the Pilis and Queen Gertrudis, wife of Andrew II, who was killed in 1213 probably by members of the court and was allegedly buried in church of the Pomáz Cistercian monastery, close to the place where she was murdered. The Pomáz Lab site was the manorial complex of the same Cistercian monastery.
- 4 December 2019: “Glasswork in the Pilis.” Judit Zágon, glass manufacturer and József Laszlovszky, archaeologist discussed the history of glass making in Pomáz and in Germany, from the Middle Ages to the present day.
