It’s Thursday so we have three more wonderful talks from the CREWS Conference ‘Exploring the Social and Cultural Contexts of Historic Writing Systems’ for you to enjoy.
Sophie Heier, Ludwig-Maximilians Universität Munich – The visibility of runic writing and its relation to Viking Age society
Dr Christian Prager, Universität Bonn – Visual-Iconographic Dimension of Maya Hieroglyphic Writing: Meanings Beyond the Surface
Alex West, Leiden University – Why did people in medieval Java use so many different scripts?
We hope you enjoy these three fascinating insights into writing culture a bit outside the usual CREWS region!
