We are now halfway through the first working week of the new year and already lots is happening at the Estoria de Espanna Project. The most exciting thing is that our new colleague, Christian, has finally joined the team. I am yet to find out whether or not he is a tea-drinker. I am sure that Christian will write his own blog post introducing himself before too long, so I won’t give away any spoilers. The other exciting thing is that we are now starting to organise the first of several conferences scheduled to take place during the course of the project. This first one will take place in April, and here in Birmingham. Again, more details to follow soon! Also, Marine has wished us all good luck for the New Year on Facebook, and the post has had more than 880 likes, comments and shares!
