Join Sarah Keeling, curator, for a free talk as part of Heritage Open Days on the fascinating story of printing in St Albans. St Albans' connection with the written word continued after the medieval manuscripts and the story told in our exhibition Chroniclers of History. Find out about how St Albans became home to the third printing press in the country in 1479, aiding the spread of enlightenment and knowledge by supplying the University of Cambridge with its texts. From printing now iconic London Transport posters to producing fake Daily Telegraph newspapers as part of the war effort, the printing history of St Albans is rich and surprising at every turn.
This talk will take place in the Learning Studio which is on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible. If you have any access needs please let us know in advance: email@example.com. Alternatively, people can choose to join online via zoom.
