Preface Vol 32

<plain_text><page sequence="1">Preface The unusually large quantity of medieval material included in a volume that appears during our centenary year reflects an abiding concern of our founder members no less than the programme chosen to mark the anniversaries of the York massacre of 1190 and the expulsion of 1290. At the same time, genealogical and bibliographical articles point towards an increasingly popular trend in topics for research. All contributors are requested to follow the editorial 'Notes for con? tributors to Society publications' printed in every volume. The last meeting of each annual session marks the deadline for receipt of copy.
