Welcome to our Christmas issue, which comes with an especially rich Books section.
We’re delighted to include a feature on the excavated glass from Lacock Abbey, ably presented by Hazel Gardiner, former Vidimus Production Editor, and now a recently qualified conservation professional.
Geoffrey Lane, well-known to Vidimus readers as an expert on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century glass, provides us with this month’s panel, an enigmatic heraldic piece from the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Happy Christmas to all our readers. Vidimus will be back in January 2012.
Anna Eavis, Editor
