Eoforwic: Anglian-era York
« on: April 29, 2022, 08:18:20 AM »
There's a cracking line-up at the York Festival of Ideas this year for their Anglian York theme. Most events are available on-line and all are free but you have to register.

There may be other talks of interest as well, outside the Anglian era ones, but this link takes you to the theme itself

Looks great - I’ve booked for three of them  ;) . Would have liked to have attended John Blair’s lecture but am booked to show a load of Norwegians round Stamford Bridge (apparently they won’t be armed and are not arriving in ships! ;D ).

I have booked in for Alcuin's mathematical puzzles as it seems to be the only one online. I know his river crossing puzzles but it will be interesting to see what else there is.
