Anglo-Saxons 2016 is a two-day conference hosted by the University of Edinburgh. It will bring postgraduate and early career researchers from eight countries and an equally large range of disciplines together to present their diverse research and approaches to the Anglo-Saxons.

The programme and more information are available at

The programme includes a keynote lecture by Alan Thacker (IHR), who will talk on ‘Kings and Cults in Late Anglo-Saxon England’. Dr Thacker’s paper will focus on the making of saints and the promotion of existing cults from the reigns of Alfred and his children through to Cnut and Edward the Confessor. The lecture is open to all, and will be followed by a drinks reception.

The conference fee is £18 (£10 for students), which includes conference packs, coffee/tea breaks, a wine reception on 9 June and lunch on 10 June. There is also the opportunity to join our speakers for the conference dinner on the evening of 10 June. Visit the registration page here:
