medium (9)Historians of late antiquity gathered on 11th and 12th October for a conference to mark the retirement of Professor Jill Harries at the end of 2013 after more than 37 years teaching and researching at St Andrews. The papers given by friends, St Andrews colleagues and former pupils included discussions of how to study Roman law, of the impact of the Franco-Prussian war on Latin philology and the shape of late antiquity. A brief report is available, written by a delegate who spoke on Bishops and Zombies.
