Morning all,

Posts have been a little thin on the ground during 2013; this is something I hope to rectify over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, today is not only Easter Sunday, it is also the 159th Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. I’ll be cheering on the dark blues this afternoon. Who’s with me?

It is also International Hug a Medievalist Day!

So, please do hug your medievalists today!
