The 8th International Insular Art Conference being held at the University of Glasgow next week will have a strong Iona theme this year. It begins on Tuesday 11 July with a keynote lecture by by Ewan Campbell and Adrián Maldonado on their recent work writing up unpublished excavations by Charles Thomas on Iona. In this lecture they will make a big announcement about some of their initial results.
In addition, the conference logo uses one of the unpublished artefacts from the Charles Thomas excavations. The keynote lecture will be followed by four papers from leading experts on the early medieval monastery on Iona.
