A chance to see behind the scenes at the Archives which are the home to the Wellington Papers, plus exhibition, tea and talk.

To mark the fortieth anniversary of the archives of the first Duke of Wellington at Southampton, we are hosting a behind the scenes day on Friday 7 July 2023.

There will be a chance to meet the curators, see a selection of gems from the collection, find out about aspects of curation, including conservation work. An exhibition outlining work on the collection over the forty years will be on show in the Level 4 Gallery and there will be a talk by Dr Zack White and tea in the Library Conference Room.
