A series of three lectures
Watch our experts discuss our manuscripts live online and get your questions answered.

Lecture 1: Meet the fragments
Leafing through a manuscript, it’s easy to ignore the fragments of other books that were often used to strengthen its binding or as endleaves to protect the beginning and end of the text. In this session the fragments are the focus.

Lecture 2: Uncomfortable English Manuscripts
Learn how the Middle Ages shaped the way we read today both in print and on screen.

Lecture 3: Correcting Christmas Carols
You will learn how singers lived with change in their favourite songs, and hear carols of the Middle Ages both familiar and new.

Free, booking required.
