Visit to the British Library

Last week many of our first year BA English students and tutors had a great study visit at the wonderful British Library.

Firstly we wandered through the ‘Treasures of The British Library’ exhibition and our students had to find answers to the following questions:

  1. Which author from Humpshire has some teenage writings on display in the library?
  2. Who received a letter from Charles Darwin that’s on display in the library?
  3. Why might that letter have been difficult to receive and read?
  4. Which work on display in the library contains the line ‘I’m not half the man I used to be’?

As our amazing students were equally good; the group that submitted the best photo of themselves in the library were declared winners.

So, this is the winning entry:

We ended our visit in a magical way, at the enchantedly busy Harry Potter: A History of Magic’ exhibition.BL-Harry-Potter-624x351-roundel
