This exhibition will be on show from April 2017, telling of the discovery of Genizah manuscripts 120 years ago, peering into the medieval society that emerges from their pages. From the discovery itself to the nitty, gritty of everyday life: amulets, a child's doodle, letters galore on subjects from ransoming a captive woman to what we might presume is the most modern of legal agreements - pre-nups!
Public event open to all. Hosted by the Friends. Friends £1 / Non-Friends £2. Cash only. Milstein Seminar Room.
