Rediscovered at Birkbeck

New addition to the Archives & Special Collections


'Rediscovered at Birkbeck' is a video about the rediscovery of four rare books at Birkbeck that provides insight into four different facets of medieval society.

The Derek Jarman Lab has produced a short film about our collection of medieval books. Professor Anthony Bale discusses the rediscovery of the books and their provenance, while Dr Isabel Davies offers illuminating insight into the symbolic imagery within the pages of the Birkbeck Book of Hours.  This is a must-see for anyone with an interest in medieval culture and literature. 

This video has been added to the Archives & Special Collections.
