Speaker information

Professor Robert Mills, UCL History of Art

“Birds do it, bees do it” goes the refrain of a popular song. But how different species ‘do it’ is left to the imagination. Taking in examples from illuminated manuscripts, Professor Mills will highlight some of the surprisingly varied responses to this theme during the Middle Ages.
