Ashgate Publishing has decided to include a new series on 'Religion and Money in the Middle Ages'. Ashgate develops areas of particular strength and they have decided to develop this subject in collaboration with all of us in the project. Ashgate commissioning editor is Tom Gray.
The series aims to explore the connections between two of the most dominant aspects of medieval society and culture: religion and money. Both are ubiquitous throughout the Middle Ages, and both are expressed through a wide variety of media, from the textual to the material.

Svenska kyrkan har tagit fram ett tekniskt beskrivningslexikon över kyrkliga föremål. Lexikonets användningsområde är bland annat som hjälpmedel vid inventerings- och dokumentationsarbete i kyrkor. Innehållet baseras på Riksantikvarieämbetets gamla föremålsindexering och omfattar samtliga begrepp från deras databaser, men även ytterligare begrepp.
Litteraturen om arkeologiske funn innenfor kirkerommet i middelalderkirker er omfattende dersom en tar med både materialoversikter, spesialavhandlinger, arkeologiske rapporter og punktstudier fra enkeltkirker. Myntfunn opptrer så å si alltid i kirkearkeologiske kontekster. Spesialstudier som drøfter myntfunn fra kirker som fenomen er betydelig færre. Denne bibliografiske oversikten er laget med det formål å skape et forskningshistorisk utgangspunkt for videre studier innenfor emnet.
Bloggside har passert 1000 unike besøkende i løpet av påskehøytiden. Målingene begynte i september forrige år. November var den travleste måneden så langt. Uansett, det er vel betydelig flere enn det som vanligvis leser våre skriverier i tradisjonelle numismatiske, arkeologiske og historiske kanaler.
FOR THE RURALIA XI CONFERENCE: The object of the conference is to discuss the various aspects of the relationship of the rural population to buildings and sites within and without rural settlement, where they practice their religion (Christian, pagan, Jewish…). This includes also several phenomena, traditions and practices which characterize the popular beliefs and religious practices. And it includes religious practices in burial rituals. The object of the conference is not the Christianization in the rural environment.

A workshop at Museum of Cultural History in Oslo will prepare an international conference in Switzerland in June 2017: Coin finds in churches - European perspective. The first day of the workshop is devoted to an open seminar.
In cooperation with Swiss colleagues we invite to a European conference on coins and coin finds in churches. The purpose is to merge Scandinavian research with research in the Continental tradition, especially for the Alpine Region where the finds from church excavations are en par with the Scandinavian.

This three-day interdisciplinary conference took place at Hatfield College, Durham University, on Wednesday 21st to Friday 23rd September 2016.

It was organised by Rosalind Green and Stephanie Britton, both third-year PhD candidates at Durham in the Department of History.
The detailed program for the upcoming international conference in Winterthur, Switzerland is ready.
This international conference bring together specialists from all over Europe and the US with contributions in English, French and German.
Key-note speakers: Aden Kumler (Chicago), Matthias Untermann (Heidelberg) and Henrik Klackenberg (Stockholm).
The theme of the conference are challenges and good practices of digitization concerning objects’ physical dimensions and environmental conditions in which they are digitally documented.
Steinar is presenting the GIS-part of the project.
Steinar presented the project with a poster at The 43rd Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology conference – Siena 2015: “KEEP THE REVOLUTION GOING”.

The organizers in Taormina have planned to put the Round Table 'Divina Moneta' in the final programme of the XV International Numismatic Congress on Tuesday 22nd September in the morning from 9.00 to 13.30.
In most societies the disposal of the corpse is accompanied by some form of celebration or ritual which may range from a simple act of deportment in solitude to the engagement of large masses of people in laborious and creative festivities. In a funerary context the term ritual may be taken to represent a process that incorporates all the actions performed and thoughts expressed in connection with a dying and dead person, from the preparatory pre-death stages to the final deposition of the corpse and the post-mortem stages of grief and commemoration.
