Shankland Lectures

Since its opening in 1884, Bangor University has gathered many rare books and manuscripts into its Library and Archives. This series of lectures, delivered by experts from across the University, will introduce the public to some of the rare objects in its collections. These artefacts include a unique medieval Book of Hours, a Caernarfon printer's Notebook, rare editions of the Arthurian legends, Welsh magazines from the 1920s and illustrated volumes of travel writing. The lectures will take place in the beautiful Shankland Library at the University's College Road site in Bangor and everyone is welcome to attend.
