Lloyd de Beer is a curator at the British Museum where he has responsibility for the late medieval European collections. He studied for his BA and MA at the University of East Anglia and is currently completing his PhD thesis there, working collaboratively with the British Museum on its collection of English alabaster sculptures. His most recent publications (including those forthcoming) are focused on reliquaries, seal matrices, alabaster sculpture, pilgrim’s badges and metalwork. Lloyd has served on the council of the BAA and as Honorary Study Day Organiser before being elected to the position of Honorary Director.
He joined the BAA after the Norwich annual conference where he saw some incredible buildings and met some truly amazing people. He has always found the BAA to be a network of supportive friends and colleagues and the conferences and lectures an exciting forum in which to discover new scholarship.
