Symposia have helped to provide inspiration, or even a model for symposia
of a similar nature held in Leeds, Yorkshire; in Australia; in Cambridge,
Massachusetts; and elsewhere, including Konya and Istanbul in Turkey.
Virtually all volumes of
Proceedings have remained available. .
Copies of the volumes of
Symposium Documents can be ordered online from Prospect

HOW THE INDEX IS COMPOSED
The index below covers the
following main categories of items:
Titles of essays and
articles, printed in italic capitals, thus - SERENDIPITY.
Names of contributors of
papers, in bold characters, thus - Coe, Dr Sophie D. The
contributor's name is followed by a list of his or her contributions.
Where a paper had two authors, the paper is listed under the name of the
first author alphabetically with a cross-reference under the name of the
Titles of recipes, all
grouped together under RECIPES within the index.
Names of main subjects,
including people, where these do not coincide with the first words of the
papers dealing with them.
It does not include, save
exceptionally, books or authors cited in papers; subjects, people or
dishes treated in an incidental way; or illustrations.
In each reference, the
year of the Symposium is given first, then the page number of the relevant
volume of the proceedings.
Where titles of papers
being with 'The', 'A' or a preposition, this has been disegarded for the
purpose of putting entries in alphabetical order. The initial letter of
the first substantive word has been taken as the operative one. Thus THE POLITICS
AND SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF TABLEWARE FOR FEASTING appears in the
appropriate place under P, not T.
