Head of Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts @britishlibrary
Joined on 21 April, 2015
Last night, Daniel Huws gave an illuminating talk on Robert Vaughan and the history of the Hengwrt library to @CambriansArch. It was an honour to visit Peniarth in the afternoon, where the precious manuscripts were preserved for 50 years until their transfer to @NLWales in 1909.
Over the last two days I have had the pleasure to be involved, in various capacities, in the awarding of 3 @historyleic PhDs! All very different, all brilliant. Well done @bbeckyL, @TrixieGadd, and @ZodiacChris. I raise a glass to you all.
Congratulations all three, and especially @bbeckyL
