Visit the "Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, World, War" exhibition at the British Library in London and explore this unique opportunity to see a range of Anglo-Saxon artefacts rarely on display.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • Demonstrate appreciation of Anglo-Saxon craft and calligraphy skills.
  • Describe one artefact from the exhibition.

How will I be taught?

What else do I need to know?

  • Students need to arrange their own transport to and from the British Library, which is 5-10 minutes walk from Kings Cross station. Students should also make their own arrangements for lunch before the visit. These costs are in addition to the course fee, which covers exhibition entry.
