Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War

A minibus-full of members visited this exhibition, which was introduced by a talk given to us by a member of the library staff. The exhibition itself covered a stunning selection of books, maps, manuscripts and a wide variety of works of art, loaned by several different museums. Those of us who are fans of Anglo-Saxon art and architecture, revelled in it all and perhaps would really need another visit to take it all in, preferably at a less-busy time! The skills of these 5th century – 11th century folk were so impressive. [The exhibition is due to finish next month.]
