Cardiff medieval historians and archaeologists are to attend a range of Scandinavian talks and lectures this Autumn, forging further links at international conferences.

With research interests in International relations and medieval diplomacy, Early medieval legal history and Medieval Scandinavia, Dr Jenny Benham is to visit Denmark and Sweden this autumn.
