Dates for the diary

On Tuesday I missed a talk by Professor Patricia Skinner on the topic of medieval disfigurement. Sadly, I lost track of time and work got in the way. It is part of a project called Losing Face? Living with Disfigurement in the Early Middle Ages, and in 2013 I saw Professor Skinner give a talk at the European Perspective on Cultures of Violence conference. That resonated with my own research into castles and how they were treated when their owners rebelled against royal authority, so I was looking forwarded to refreshing my memory.

Another event I would like to attend but almost certainly won’t be able to is Contest and Collaboration: Chester Conference on the March of Wales. With Chester so close to the Welsh border, there is going to be plenty to discuss on the day. Best of luck to the organisers, and who knows: if I’m lucky I may even be able to find time to go.
