These annual volumes include articles on a range of topics having to do with living history, agriculture, interpretation, historic sites and many more.

The 2010 Annual Conference & Meeting will take place June 20-24, headquartered in Worcester, MA, and hosted by Old Sturbridge Village. There is still time to register for the meeting; details are at http://www.alhfam.org/?cat_id=295#452
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
