At last we can officially demonstrate the new Kunera website on Thursday 29 September 2022. The new application is also an occasion to present recent badge research.

With almost 27.000 medieval badges and ampulla Kunera offers the largest survey of these objects in the world. The improved website and its new features make the database more efficient and user-friendly, as Willy Piron will demonstrate. Further, Ann Marie Rasmussen (University of Waterloo, Canada) and Hanneke van Asperen (Radboud University) will present their latest publications: Badges. Their Wearers and Their Worlds and Silver Saints. Lastly, Kathryn Rudy (St Andrews University) will share her views on badges as hostsouvenirs.

Participation at the event is free of charge. Registration is compulsory.
