Projet Volterra II succeeds in a bid for a further tranche of funding from the AHRC. The new phase of the project will run for five years to the end of 2015. Carrying on chronologically from the first phase, which went up to the ninth century, this phase will study the survival of Roman law from the Carolingian period down to the Roman law 'revival' (c.800-1100).
