the conference should be addressed to the Director
In 1987 (the Conference's tenth year and the 900th anniversary of the death of William the Bastard/Conqueror) the Conference met in Caen, and it has now established a tradition of travelling in every fifth year - in 1992 to Palermo, in 1997 to Dublin, in 2002 to Glasgow,
and in 2007 to Gregynog, Montgomeryshire'. The 2012 Conference continued
this tradition by being held in Bayeux.
This year’s Allen Brown Memorial Lecture will be given by
Professor Elisabeth van Houts and will be followed by a Reception hosted
by the Faculty of History of the University of Cambridge. The conference
will finish at lunch-time on the Tuesday. As always, there will be
visits to places of interest, including an exhibition of manuscripts in
the Wren Library of Trinity College, an excursion to Isleham, the Fens,
and Ely, and a walking tour of early medieval Cambridge.
Details of the programme are now available. To be put on the mailing list or for further
information about the conference please contact the director,
Please note that there is no 'call for papers' for the Battle Conference
and that all papers are read at the director's invitation. Suggestions
