Battles and Dynasties Exhibition
The Collection, Lincoln and Lincoln Castle
SATURDAY 27 MAY - SUNDAY 3 SEPTEMBER 2017
This major exhibition to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Battle of Lincoln brings together an unprecedented collection of original documents, manuscripts, artwork and artefacts illustrating conflict for the Crown over almost 1,000 years. Iconic objects such as the Domesday book and the triple portrait of Charles I will be on display. The exhibition is a collaboration between Lincolnshire County Council, the Historic Lincoln Trust, The National Archives and The British Library, with exhibits being loaned from other national and international libraries, archives, museums and galleries. The exhibition catalogue is being written by Dr Nicholas Bennett, Honorary General Editor of the Lincoln Record Society, and its publication is part-funded by the Society. A wonderful opportunity to visit this not-to-be-missed exhibition!
