This autumn will mark the 800th anniversary of the death of King John and, to commemorate the occasion, a major conference will be held in Dublin. Leading historians from around the world will gather in Dublin Castle (constructed in 1204 to be the centre of John’s Irish administration) to debate the controversial king’s place in British, Irish and European history.
The conference, hosted by UCD, will be held 8-10 September. You can find out more, and book your place, via the conference website (N.B. book before 25 April for an early registration discount).
