British Academy Review, Issue 17, March 2011
This issue shows the activities of the British Academy contributing to policy and other topical issues.
There are also a range of articles with a medieval theme - drawing both on the British Academy's 'Medieval Week' held in November 2010, and on the rich variety of longstanding British Academy Research Projects that produce resources for the study of medieval history.
The issue concludes with some appreciations of the value of humanities and social sciences subjects.
