We are pleased to announce that the Keynote speaker for this year’s Medieval Midlands conference will be Helena Hamerow, Professor of Early Medieval Archaeology at the University of Oxford. Professor Hamerow has written extensively on Anglo-Saxon communities, with a focus on England and Northwest Europe. We are excited to hear her speak about identity in Wessex in the post-Roman world, which has particular relevance for our conference theme.
For postgraduates wishing to speak at the conference, the call for papers remains open until 10th February, with abstracts of 300 words to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Delegate registration will open during the spring.
