Ecce Yeomanus

The 2nd Biennial Symposium of the Inst of Yeoman Studies, Ecce Yeomanus on 7-8th Feb. 2009, was by general vote a great success. Some 220 delegates from thirteen countries convened over two days at the Univ. Bangor, Wales to listen to 37 papers and some very lively forum interchanges.

Among the keynote speakers we were privileged to welcome so many who have made a seminal contribution to Yeoman studies since that historic day of 14th February 2002.
