People and Plague at Magdalen College
from the Library and Archives of Magdalen College, Oxford
A one-time chance to visit this exhibition on the weekend.
Highlighting people’s stories and histories in relation to a very current topic, the artefacts relate to the people within the Magdalen community; exploring the College’s experience of – and responses to – epidemic diseases, from its founding in 1458 to the present day, including Fellows involved in the development of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
The display will include artefacts from the thirteenth century, with the Foundation Charter at the centre of the exhibition.
Entrance is free
