    Ireland's Book of Durrow to join Beowulf and Bede

    The British Library has just announced that the Book of Durrow will be on loan from Dublin for their forthcoming Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition (Oct 19 to Feb 19, London) that will also include the Lindisfarne Gospels, Beowulf, Bede's Ecclesiastical History and the Domesday Book among 180 or so truly priceless treasures. I'm dragging my lot there in November. Awesome.

    "Our forthcoming exhibition will be the first opportunity to see the Book of Durrow in Britain since it was displayed at the Royal Academy in the ‘Treasures of Trinity College Dublin’ exhibition in 1961. The only loan to that exhibition was the Lindisfarne Gospels. Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms will be the first occasion on which the two manuscripts have been exhibited together for nearly 60 years."

    This is reported in several papers today eg

    This sounds like a must see exhibit albeit wrong end of the country for me.

    This is just to say this exhibition exceeded my expectations. It runs until February 19 so people may still be able to book a slot. Here's a tip: the first room was completely crowded when we entered so I returned to it later. There is a staircase at the end that takes you back to the start, so we went for a quicker second run through when the first rooms were almost empty. We spent two hours there, which was enough time to see everything properly. No photography is allowed but there are plenty of good souvenirs on sale in the shop.
