Several on Germanic list have asked for information about a Migration Period symposium that is held in Vara, Sweden, 12 of June 2010.
Lercture languages are however Swedish and Danish but it will be published with summaries in English. There is a possibility that we can arrange summaries directly after the lectures or prefabricated ones on paper if enough many are interested to attend. It all depends on time and number.In any case several of us might assist with personal aid in English, German, French and presumably Dutch.
If you are interested you may contact me at: ingemar@....
