In this, the fourth video in the Wollaton series, Kathryn Summerwill (Assistant Archivist) takes you on a tour of the manuscripts and books in the collection and reveals some of their stories.

A Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) award enabled Manuscripts and Special Collections to conserve, catalogue and provide access to the remains of the Collection.

Access to the ten medieval manuscripts and 42 printed books had been limited both because of their fragile condition and the specialist nature of the manuscripts. The volumes include texts in Middle English, Old French and Anglo-Norman French as well as Latin.

In episode 2, find out about the conservation of these rare manuscripts and books.
