Some snapshots of our time at the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) conference in Versailles, 30 June–3 July 2015. It was the hottest July in the region since 1947, which provided quite the environmental topic for conversation! Thanks to the organizers and to all of you who dropped by our book stall, it was great to meet you. To those who expressed an interest in our Perspectives series, in making a blog contribution, and/or wanted further information on our work here at the RCC, please do get in touch!
