29th International Conference,
Haskins Society
Boston College
5-7 November 2010

The Charles Homer Haskins Society for Viking, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman and Angevin History extends its warmest invitation to members and friends (old and new) to join us for the 29th International Conference, now settling into its new home at Boston College. As ever, we will be gathering for a buffet of premier scholarship and conviviality.

An industrious team at Boston College have spent much of the summer preparing for the conference, and the fruits of their labors are to be found at the new conference blog: haskinsatbostoncollege.blogspot.com. The blog is an exceptionally rich source of information on how to get oriented to Boston College, the city, and its many offerings. Should anyone have questions which are not answered here or at the blog, please e-mail the Conference staff at haskinsatbostoncollege@gmail.com for definitive information.
