I have a proposal for a paper. I hope it's not too late. It's entitled "Death: A Common Aspect of Life in the Middle Ages"...

You are going to burn in Hell HH. Death WAS important in the Middle Ages in a way that is no longer true. I just said it in a way that sounded funny!!

Sounds like an excellent lineup. I hope everything went as well as if not better than last year. I have just finished working with elements of that very topic. I've been immersed in Geary's Living with the Dead in the Middle Ages, and Peter Brown's Cult of the Saints. I would have loved to have been there.

Hey Rebecca. Good to hear from you! I'm glad you liked the programme. It went very well I must say. The papers were all extremely interesting, our opening and closing speakers were great, and very supportive throughout the conference, and our chairs were all super. All in all, an excellent couple of days.
How is your work going?
