Lots of these events and projects have happened with some regular co-conspirators and brilliant medievalists from KCL. Find my supervisory team’s profiles: Clare Lees, Josh Davies, and Alan Read. And check out fellow PhD students (or past students!) Dr Hana Videen’s blog and twitter; Francesca Brooks, Kath Maude, and the Centre for Late Antique and Medieval Studies on twitter. You can also find Hana’s Word Hoard website here. And I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without support from LAHP/ AHRC.
