4 Meet the Maps: Unconventional Views of Oxford Focusing on four very different maps of Oxford - each of the maps has its own tale to tell, some showing Oxford as it was; others showing Oxford as it might have been; and others how Oxford never was. Nick Millea, Stuart Ackland, Helen Cook 05 Apr 2022
3 MS Ashmole 1504 Dating from around 1520 and probably conceived as a pattern book, this manuscript is best described as a 'herbal and bestiary' and contains images of flora and fauna together with stylised, floriated ornaments and coloured alphabets. Martin Kauffmann, Helen Cook, Lynn Hulse 04 Feb 2022
2 Meet the Manuscripts: Uncomfortable English Manuscripts In this lecture, we look at some beautiful, austere, and distinctively uncomfortable manuscripts and learn how the Middle Ages shaped the way we read today both in print and on screen. Dan Wakelin, Andrew Dunning, Helen Cook 08 Nov 2021
