North and south: tobacco pipe studies in the western Mediterranean and their north-western European connections. 4th-7th November 2010

The 26th conference of the Académie Internationale de la Pipe will be held in Grasse, Alpes-Maritimes, France from the 4th to the 7th of November 2010 at the Bibliothèque Municipale. It will focus on the magnificent collection of European pipes of all types made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Alice Baroness Rothschild, which was donated to the library after her death in 1922. The collection will be made accessible for detailed study by members of the conference and a number of background papers will be presented about it. There will also be a series of presentations of new archaeological evidence for pipe production and consumption in southern France, northern Italy, Spain and further afield. Anyone interested in giving a paper or attending the meeting, please contact Dr Susie White
