Over the past few weeks we have implemented many of the changes you suggested and are now good to go with our second phase. I am attaching our new manual version to this email. We will now begin inputting information at the agreed upon pace of 100 fillings of Form 2 every two weeks, and you can fill these in advance. This should not take you more than 10 hours per month at most. The first batch is due on Sunday, December 6.
We have raised enough funds to secure our spring conference, which will take place during the 29 April-1 May weekend (final schedule pending), and have begun inviting some of the world’s leading figures in the fields of late antique and early medieval economic history. Please mark these dates on your calendars.
Finally, we are continuing to grow – Joe Glynias, who will work with Jane on Syria/Egypt, has recently joined us. An expert on Poland and its surroundings will soon join as well.
