It was a gorgeous evening, and we are grateful to King’s College, Cambridge for playing host. 


On the 4th of July, members of the CRASSH community gathered by the river at Bodley's Court, King’s College for the annual Summer Party. We've included a selection of photographs from the event for our researchers who were away on fieldwork or at conferences – you were missed!
