Degree Congregations

Wednesday's Birmingham Post has a selection of photos from the University of Birmingham's degree congregations.
Amongst them is one of me leaning on the Mace prior to leading the Chancellor into the Great Hall (pic 5). The mace was used in the first congregation in 1901, and little has changed in terms of the ceremony, except maybe the number and size of them.
