Welcome

ISAS 2015 1

Welcome to ISAS 2015!

The University of Glasgow is delighted to host the 17th Biennial Meeting of the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists, the theme of which is ‘The Daily Life of the Anglo-Saxons’. This is intended to encompass all areas of Anglo-Saxon studies: archaeology, art, history, language, law, literature, numismatics, onomastics, palaeography and others. We hope that all of these and more will feature in the papers presented at the conference, and so reveal the enormous range of activities that comprised early medieval life.

The committee has organized a programme of events that combines academic interests with receptions in some of Glasgow’s most prestigious venues, and includes excursions to the Ruthwell Cross, St Ninian’s Whithorn, and St Columba’s Isle of Iona with an expert guide.

We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow!
