This seminar research programme comprises four research trips taking place over two years (2015-2016). Two of these trips will be held in 2015 (Turkey and Israel) and two in 2016 (Greece and Jordan).
The first trip has been scheduled for Turkey from 28 June 2015 to 6 July 2015, during which time the programme leader, Professor Scott Redford, the Academic Readers and the selected participants will travel the entire length of Turkey exploring and discussing the art historical and archaeological evidence for possible connections between the different ethnic, religious, cultural and social groups in this part of the world during the medieval period.
Updates on their progress and discussions will be posted on the group's blog site at http://artofthecrusades.blogspot.co.uk
Further trips will be made later to Israel (autumn 2015), Greece (spring 2016) and Jordan (autumn 2016).
