The deadline for oral presentations has now passed. Poster presentation abstracts will be accepted until 19th October and the deadline for registration is 1st November.
Cardiff University School of History and Archaeology is launching a new seminar programme, to take place over a period of 2-3 years, designed to re-examine fundamental assumptions about the post-1945 era.
A two-day Ancient Cremations workshop will be hosted by the Cardiff Osteoarchaeology Research Group Laboratory, and will encourage inter-school and cross-institutional communications by bringing together researchers, professionals, students and the public with an interest in ancient cremation and cremation ritual practices of the past.
Over three days leading scholars in the field delivered papers on the writings of Julian. Each scholar focused on a particular text (or set of texts, e.g. Julian’s letters). The conference also embraced a chronological and thematic approach to Julian’s writings.
