Illuminated treasures from the British Library on YouTube

In a six-part video series available on YouTube, Dr Janina Ramirez "unlocks the secrets of illuminated manuscripts that were custom-made for kings and explores the medieval world they reveal."

The series begins with the Anglo-Saxon kings in the British Library's Royal manuscripts collection, continues with French manuscripts, such as the Bedford Hours, brought to England after the war with France, and ends with manuscripts and documents from the Court of Henry VIII.
