I greatly enjoyed the panels I saw at @ResearchDurham conf the past two days. @ElizabethCBiggs discussed an interesting copy of the Malleus Maleficarum held at Durham, while @EilishGregory revealed the extent of letters/material held at Ushaw concerning 18thC recusancy in Britain

Had a fantastic time at @ResearchDurham conference in Durham. Was great to see familiar faces and meet new ones and to hear a vast array of papers across a long time period. I will probably try and sum up a few papers I heard tomorrow. Until then: https://t.co/xcdF6Debtu ResearchDurham photo

On the train home after the fantastic #DurhamRRL conference with lots to think about; thanks to @ResearchDurham, @IMEMSDurham and all the presenters!
