CRSBI would like to thank the Norfolk & Norwich Archaeological Society for a grant to pay some of our young corpus editors to manipulate around 1000 digitised images of the Norfolk sculpture ready for publication.
The Annual Lecture was held at 5.30pm at the Courtauld Institute of Art on April 26th. The lecture was given by Professor Jane Geddes. The costs associated with the lecture and reception were generously met by John Osborn. CRSBI would like to thank him for his support.
We keep adding more editors and site reports are getting added at an ever faster pace.
I recently recorded the font at Tillingham, Essex for the Corpus. It is the only one I have seen in which the bowl is clearly designed to slope towards the celebrant, like a lectern. For photographs, see the site entry. Has anyone seen this feature anywhere else - if so we would be grateful to hear about it via the contact email.
Professor Tessa Garton gave our annual lecture for 2015 on Evidence set in stone? Twelfth-century sculptors and workshop practices in northern Palencia, Spain. (28th April 2015 at the Courtauld Institute of Art). The lecture was well attended and one can only imagine that sales of flights to northern Palencia went through the roof, as the CRSBI community discovered the quality of work to be seen there. We would like to thank Professor Garton for a superb lecture.
