The Network for Medieval Arts & Rituals is celebrating a year of NetMAR Blog!

The NetMAR Blog, which has published thirteen texts so far, is committed to finding exciting and interesting ways of communicating expert and original research into medieval arts and rituals to wider audiences. #NetMAR blog posts are published at the end of each month and are available on our website: www.netmar.cy/blog.
