New light on old books

18 November, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come along and unlock the secrets of medieval manuscripts! This event will showcase and explain some of the digital tools and techniques that libraries and researchers are using to uncover lost details of centuries-old books. You can see a manuscript which is over 500 years old and investigate the history of its production and its readers. You will also have the opportunity to get creative with electric ink, 3D printing and chat to researchers about how they are using new forms of digital technology to explore our written cultural heritage.

No booking required
