Reed); Another perspective on the origins and symbolic interpretations of animals in Early Medieval sculpture in Northern England and French Burgundy (Nicole M. Kleinsmith); Putting memory in its place: sculpture, cemetery topography and commemoration (Zoë L. Devlin); A cross-head from St Mary Castlegate, York, and its affiliations (Victoria Whitworth); Commemoration at York: the significance of Minster 42, Costauns grave-cover (Heather Rawlin-Cushing); Aspects of the Anglo-Saxon tradition in architectural sculpture and articulation: the overlap and beyond (Malcolm Thurlby); Laser scanning of the inscribed Hiberno-Romanesque arch at Monaincha, Co.
