The 16th Friends of Medieval Dublin symposium entitled Clontarf 1014-2014 will take place the 11-12th April at the Edmund Burke Theatre in Trinity College Dublin
Vikings, Brian Boru and the battle of Clontarf
For those interested in the history of medieval Dublin, 2014 marks the millennium of one of the most important events in medieval Ireland.
The Battle of Clontarf in April 1014 was hugely significant in medieval Ireland and this year’s Friends conference is dedicated to exploring the context, course and legacy of the battle of Clontarf and Ireland’s most famous medieval king Brian Boru.
This free conference will run for TWO DAYS and will be packed full of papers presented by the foremost experts on this period of Ireland’s history, making this year’s symposium a must-see for all enthusiasts of medieval Ireland.
Registration is free and all are welcome, but we ask that people book tickets in advance at http://clontarfconference.eventbrite.ie. Tickets will be available as of 31 March 2014.
If you would like to be reminded about tickets, please send us an email and we will add you to our list.
We look forward to seeing you all at the conference.
