*Apologies for cross-posting*
Students, researchers and lecturers are cordially invited to an end of project spectacular on 28th November 2011 at the Millennium Dome, at which Pelagios* will be representing the Classical World.
JISC, who are funding the event, are particularly keen on real 'users' to play around with the tools being presented (and see if they break), so they are offering to pay travel and accommodation expenses for anyone interested in attending. Classically-minded DigHums types will also have the opportunity to play with all the other #jiscGEO projects, so it promises to be a fun day out for all the family...

With all best wishes
