Our Year 9 visited London to see some of the treasures of the British Library. They have been researching some of the very ancient books, maps, letters and manuscripts that are carefully preserved and are lasting legacies of important pivotal moments in our history. Shakespeare’s poems, the Magna Carta and beautifully illustrated religious books make up some of the most popular manuscripts. There was also a special exhibition called HARRY POTTER: A HISTORY OF MAGIC where students explored a treasure trove of magical artefacts from around the world including the Ripley Scroll an ancient parchment promising to reveal the secret of the Elixir of Life and a 3000 year old cauldron found in the Thames.
