The annual CMRC Reuter Day has been organised this year together with History to honour our colleague Chris Woolgar, Emeritus Professor of History and Archival Studies.

Chris has given long and distinguished service to the university, for most of his career as an archivist and curator in the Hartley Library and from 2013 as a member of History. He has made many important contributions to scholarship, often defining new areas of research in medieval studies. His research interests have ranged widely from the medieval household through the senses and food to the material culture of everyday life. In recognition of his achievements, he was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic meant that we could not celebrate this properly at the time, so this day in Chris’s honour has been long planned.
