    Boydell and Brewer are publishing a book in honour of the scholarly achievements of 'People of 1381' team member, Professor Anne Curry. The volume is entitled Documenting Warfare: Records of the Hundred Years War, Edited and Translated in Honour of Anne Curry and is edited by Rémy Ambühl and Andy King.

    Documentary sources for the Hundred Years War are many and varied, yet given the number that exist, comparatively few have been published, and even fewer translated. The contributors to this volume, celebrating the work of Professor Anne Curry, provide a wide selection of these sources, edited and translated, and accompanied with detailed analysis and commentaries, by experts in the field. They include contracts, inventories, letters of grace, depositions and wills, and shed new light across a range of themes, from recruitment, violence, ransoms and peace, to gunpowder, shipping, dress, and stray horses. An introductory essay gives a wider perspective on the sources for the Hundred Years War, taking a comparative view from both sides of the Channel. 

    You can subscribe to the volume and add your name to the Tabula Gratulatoria in honour of Professor Curry by completing the following form before Friday 5th April 2024:
