Sad news

We are sorry to announce the death in early January 2010 of Fred Jenkins, a very long serving member of the Joint Library of the Hellenic and Roman Societies who started work in 1936, ending his career as Sub-Librarian when he retired in 1977. Fred will be remembered fondly by those who knew him.

New Periodical

The Library has recently added a new title, Journal of Late Antiquity, a gift from one of our readers. Our holdings are from Vol 1, 2008 onwards.
