Abstract

Already for some years the Medieval Animal Data-Network (MAD) has been organising a round table discussion at the Leeds congress concentrating on one (group of) animal(s) and their role, perception, and functions in the medieval world. While we discussed ‘Whales’ in 2014, the 2015 meeting concentrates on ‘Creepy-Crawlies’ to be discussed in multidisciplinary perspectives.

Participants include Alice Choyke (Central European University, Budapest), Michael Mecklenburg (Universität Kassel), Irina Metzler (Swansea University), Mónica Ann Walker Vadillo (University of Louisville, Kentucky), and Kathleen Walker-Meikle (University of York).
