Reviews
In 1978 the first Battle Conference was held at Battle, England, not far from Hastings. It was founded by R. Allen Brown, now remembered annually in the conference's memorial lecture. . . . [I[f the volume under review provides an accurate gauge, the quality of the conference remains high. R. Allen Brown would certainly be pleased with both the variety and the scholarship exhibited by the papers included. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW
