Two forthcoming conferences for Medievalists and archaeologists

This is just a quick plug to advertise two forthcoming conferences, both of which I am involved with in some capacity and both of which are being held at University College London (UCL) in central London over the next month.

The first is scheduled to take place at UCL this coming weekend (11th - 12th June) and is devoted to the subject of “Medieval Sexualities”. The two-day event is organised under the auspices of the North/Early Medieval Interdisciplinary Conference Series (NEMICS), with yours truly being one of the co-organisers. The program can be found online here, and thanks to a pot of university funding this event is 100% free, so if it sounds like your thing then do register and come along for the weekend (or just one day!).

The second event is a one-day symposium organised by Murray Andrews, to be held at the UCL Institute of Archaeology on Wednesday 22th June. Its title is “Coins, Hoards, and Special Deposits: Current Research”, and it will feature a range of scholars dealing with archaeological depositions in various periods of the past, from the Bronze Age right through to the present day (including me talking about my recent research into well veneration and deposition in Anglo-Saxon England). This sounds like it’s going to be a really interesting day and it too is free, so again, if this is your cup of tea then please do come along; you can register here.
