Description

A pdf of the poster and programme cover of the International Medievalism and Popular Culture Symposium held at the University of Western Australia on December 4 and 5, 2011. The symposium featured sixteen delegates from Australia, Puerto Rico, the U.S.A., and Wales. The poster was created by Brett Hirsch, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at UWA. It features a pop-art version of the Bust of Charlemagne.

Ruling over modern-day France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and much of Germany and Italy, Charlemagne was a Frankish king and Holy Roman Emperor who died in 814. The Bust of Charlemagne is a gold reliquary containing Charlemagne’s skull, which was created in 1349. It can be seen in the Treasury of Aachen Cathedral, Germany.
