A new academic year has started and we are happy to welcome three new CAS research project to the Centre. The projects for the 2021/2022 academic year are within the fields of archaeology, medieval law and chemical physics. We are crossing our fingers that this academic year will be one with fewer pandemic restrictions where we can welcome many international scholars to the Centre.
