A great highlight of the Society’s Study Day held on Saturday 21 June 2003 was the presentation by Nicholas Groves entitled ‘Where did you get that hood?’, which examined the evolution of the different shapes of hood and looked at some examples from the Burgon Society Archive. [Excerpt from 'Where Did You Get That Hood?']. More than thirty Burgon Society members and friends gathered in Cambridge on 29 November 2003 for a study day entitled ‘Robes and Robemakers’. The occasion was hosted by Dr George Shaw, FBS, at Girton College. The proceedings took place in the splendid surroundings of the Stanley Library. Time was allowed in the programme for informal talk over coffee and tea and at lunch in hall and for a tour of the College guided by George Shaw. [Excerpt from 'Robes and Robemakers'].
