    The topics of the essays it contains range from the curious place of Francia in the historiography of medieval Europe to strategies of royal land distribution in tenth-century Anglo-Saxon England to the representation of men and masculinity in the works of Anglo-Norman historians. Essays on the place of polemical literature in Frutolf of Michelsberg's Chronicle, exploration of the relationship between chivalry and crusading in Baudry of Bourgeuil's History, and Cosmas of Prague's manipulation of historical memory in the service of ecclesiastical privilege and priority each extend the volume's engagement with medieval historiography, employing rich continental examples to do so. Investigations of comital personnel in Anjou and Henry II's management of royal forests and his foresters shed new light on the evolving nature of secular governance in the twelfth centuries and challenge and refine important aspects of our view of medieval rule in this period. The volume ends with a wide-ranging reflection on the continuing importance of the art object itself in medieval history and visual studies.

    Angela Boyd, an associate consultant with Oxford Archaeology, gave a gripping (and at times, almost too vivid) talk at the 2012 Haskins Conference.  Our colleagues over at have given her presentation a spotlight on their website. Be sure to scroll down and check out the video feeds that Peter Konieczny has included.

    As you can see, the Haskins Society is anything but dead! We are re-launching our website in its entirety with both new content, but more importantly, more functionality and interactivity.  Stay tuned for more updates, because they are coming!
