Treasures at Canterbury Cathedral
This book brings the reader up close to some of the most significant and priceless objects on display at Canterbury Cathedral. Each item has been carefully selected from more than half a million objects currently held in the Cathedral’s Collections and the Cathedral’s UNESCO Memory of the World archive, together with some loan items that feature in the new exhibition spaces inside this beautiful building. Every one of these treasures helps to tell part of the fascinating history of the Cathedral. From Anglo-Saxon charters to 20th-century vestments, from stone carvings to silver sundials, more than 1,300 years of history is presented here through this collection of curious and often surprising artefacts.
Dr Sarah Turner is Head of Collections at Canterbury Cathedral.
