The Reading EMRC 2014 Conference was held from 7- 9 July. Delegates attended from India, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Canada, the United States, Australia, Serbia, Croatia, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands as well as the UK. Papers were delivered on a wide array of subjects, including experiments with gunpowder, the use of beards in stage plays, proper names scrawled in Bibles, drinking and fighting in ale-houses, Henry VIII's love letters, and religious ideas about bad weather. Professor Randall McLeod (University of Toronto) and Professor Tony Claydon (Bangor University) delivered the plenary lectures in which they considered ordinary things - books and time - in extraordinary ways.
