In the past year the Sheldon Tapestry Maps of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, and Worcestershire dating from the late Tudor period have all been displayed in the Bodleian’s Weston Library; the final member of this set, Warwickshire, is on display just over 40 miles away in Warwick.
The Weston Library is hosting a one-day symposium to celebrate these stunning cartographic masterpieces, exploring their historical context in terms of mapmaking and their place in society; marvelling at conservation work; and bringing the tapestries up to date with the latest research on both their content and creation.
Join us for a day of presentations by expert speakers, and learn of the results of the most recent research and conservation work.
