From the 19th October 2018 - Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War
In the 5th century,  the final Roman soldiers left Britain replaced by settlers from Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands. These newcomers became known as the Anglo-Saxons, who lived happily until France’s Duke of Normandy captured the English crown in 1066.

The British library is commemorating this with Anglo-Saxon kingdoms: Art, Word, War, including the Domesday Book (arguably the countries most famous tome),  which details the lands captured by the French and the codex Amiatinus:  a huge copy of the Bible,  created by English monks gifted to the Pope in 716.

To the 21st October 2018 - Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land
Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Empire Windrush landing, discover the Carribeans who arrived through poetry, novels and music.
