21-23|10|2015 Conference Dead Men Talking
A team of the KIK-IRPA was recently involved in the thorough analysis on the contents of the shrine of the Blessed Abbot Idesbald, held in Bruges. This research may be an important reference point in the research into the collection of individuals of the Abbey in Koksijde, the remains of whom are now mainly kept at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels. The 7th international conference of the Abbey Museum Of the Dunes, Dead Men Talking, highlights the latest research and scope with a focus on:
- - The broader approach of skeletons and their funerary context;
- The life of the dead, both community and individual.
