Conference: Seals and their Context in the Middle Ages.
27-29 April, 2012,
This conference seeks to explore the functions of seals in medieval Britain and Western Europe in the broadest possible context. Themes will include the use of seals in law and administration and the act of sealing, as well as questions relating to how, why and by whom seals were employed. A further important theme will be the manner in which seals relate to other sources: visual, material and documentary. Above all the conference will encourage debate amongst scholars operating from within different academic traditions.
