Thu 25 May 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
Find out how one of England’s great poets and preachers, John Donne (1572-1631), features in London Metropolitan Archives. Join Dr Mary Ann Lund (University of Leicester) and Professor Peter McCullough (University of Oxford) in exploring the manuscripts that provide clues about Donne’s life. You’ll be able to look at the documents themselves and hear more about Donne’s contribution to literature. The session will include plenty of tips on how to research 16th and 17th century lives, using the archives and digital tools.
