BES newsletter 19 released (but not online)

Paid-up members of the British Epigraphy Society will have last week received a copy of issue #19 of the BES Newsletter, either by email or in print. (I note that the online archive at does not have this issue online yet–although issue 18 [Winter 2007] is listed as “Autumn 2008”.) I shall not reproduce the whole newsletter here without permission, but the news reported within it includes:

  • 2008 Autumn Colloquium and Annual General Meeting, November 22, oragnized by Charlotte Tupman at King’s College London. (If we haven’t yet announced this on this blog we should and shall soon.)
  • Practical Epigraphy Workshop, late June/early July 2009 (tba)
  • Day School: The History of Writing in the Classical World, Oxford, October 25, 2008 (CE announced here)
  • Report on Cambridge Epigraphy day, February 2008 (CE reported here, here, here, here, and here)
  • Report on BES Spring meeting in Durham
  • Report on Practical Epigraphy Workshop, York, 24-26 June 2008
  • Report on epigraphic papers at Triennial Conference, Oxford

    The absence of the latest newsletter from the BES website is deliberate — only subscribers get the cutting-edge news! But the labelling of 2007’s newsletter as 2008 is my chronological incompetence: thanks for alerting me to it.

  2. Thanks for the clarificaion, Polly. Just out of interest, at what point does this newsletter cease to be “cutting edge”? Is there a rolling release at a set point, or will 19 only be released on the web when 20 is published by email?

  3. Polly Low says:

    The latter — issue 19 will be posted on the website as soon as it’s been superseded by issue 20. That’s the current policy anyway — no doubt it can be tweaked if the membership/committee demand it!
