Picture This…

‘Picture This’ enables the public to have an enhanced insight into the collections of Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library. ‘Picture This’ also provides valuable opportunities for postgraduate students from the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University to write short, focused articles based on original sources. Staff and friends from the universities also contribute articles. The medieval archive of Canterbury Cathedral, as held at the Cathedral Archives, is inscribed on the UNESCO UK Memory of the World Register. The thirtieth anniversary of Canterbury’s UNESCO World Heritage Site (which consists of Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church) will be celebrated this May with a conference at CCCU.

‘Picture This’ is co-ordinated by Dr Stuart Palmer (UEA), Dr Robert Gallagher of the University of Kent and Dr Diane Heath of Canterbury Christ Church University, with staff from Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library. The focus is on medieval and early modern items from the collections which have a particular visual interest.
