From Weston House to the Weston Library: the Sheldon Tapestry Maps at the Bodleian Symposium
Weston Library, Oxford

£20 per ticket
A one-day symposium exploring the Sheldon Tapestry Maps
In the past year the Sheldon Tapestry Maps of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, and Worcestershire dating from the late Tudor period have all been displayed in the Bodleian’s Weston Library; the final member of this set, Warwickshire, is on display just over 40 miles away in Warwick.
The Weston Library is hosting a one-day symposium to celebrate these stunning cartographic masterpieces, exploring their historical context in terms of mapmaking and their place in society; marvelling at conservation work; and bringing the tapestries up to date with the latest research on both their content and creation.
Join us for a day of presentations by expert speakers, and learn of the results of the most recent research and conservation work.
