Richard Ashdowne, a Senior Research Fellow at Somerville College, has been interviewed by BBC Radio Oxford following the completion, after 100 years, of the Oxford Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources. Dr Ashdowne was editor of the dictionary in its final stages.

The interview, which aired during the 1 September Malcolm Boyden programme, can be listened to on the BBC website (it begins at 02:40:27) and read about in a BBC web story published on 31 August.

An article was published on the Somerville College website when the dictionary was completed and a feature article appeared in the 2014 edition of the Somerville Magazine.
