Annual Journal, Vol 164, 2011

The Journal of the British Archaeological Association for 2011 (Volume 164) was dedicated to the medieval chantry in England. Given that the Association can only afford to publish journals above a certain length by dipping into its own reserves, it was necessary to secure outside support before we could contemplate going ahead with a volume on this scale. John Osborn agreed to take on this role of sponsor, indeed to underwrite the whole of the cost overrun. Without his generosity a BAA chantries volume on this scale would have been quite impossible and the Association extend its heartfelt thanks. It was distributed to members in January 2012.
