This event is inspired by the British Library exhibition Writing: Making your Mark which runs from 26th April to 27th August 2019.
Discover the extraordinary story behind one of humankind’s greatest achievements, through more than 100 objects spanning 5,000 years and seven continents. Follow the remarkable evolution of writing from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs carved in stone and early printed text such as William Caxton’s edition of The Canterbury Tales, to the art of note-taking by some of history’s greatest minds, and onwards to the digital communication tools we use today.
