Rediscovering Medieval Ireland lecture now online

If you were unable to attend the Rediscovering Medieval Ireland lecture by Professor Robin Frame last month, it's now available on what I'll refer to as an illustrated audio video.

The lecture marked the launch of a major new Internet resource — CIRCLE: A Calendar of Irish Chancery Letters c.1244–1509, which can be viewed online here, and Professor Frame explains its value to historians and genealogists.

So put on the kettle, pull up a chair and enjoy. The audio recording of the lecture is accompanied with images of the new website, medieval documents and persons involved in the digitisation project. The lecture runs to 63 minutes.
