Robin Fleming, Professor of History at Boston College, will be delivering this year's fall Skotheim Lecture.
Professor Fleming is an early medieval historian who writes history from both texts and material evidence. Her most recent book, Britain After Rome, came out in hardback in the UK last fall, and was released in the US and in paperback in May, 2011.
She is currently working on a book on "the lost world of things," which explores the ways in which the study of different categories of "things" (i.e., Roman metalwork that has been recycled; things found in the graves of fifth-century women and children; things made from glass) helps us re-imagine the early medieval past.
