If you're in or around London, you'll have most likely have noticed that it's been monsooning for days. The gladioli seem glad of it, however, and we thought we'd add some cheer to the wet drear by revealing the programme for DigiPal V next week (see  below). Excited? We are! And it's still not too late to register if you'd like to be part of the hippest, most happening Digital Palaeography event to be taking place at King's College London next Wednesday. It's easy: just sign-up with Eventbrite.

Looking forward to seeing you next week,

Stewart Brookes and Peter Stokes
