Samuel Holland's 1765 map of Prince Edward Island was the first accurate map created of the island, situated just off the Nova Scotia coast. This summer this enormous map is being loaned to the island and it will feature in a major exhibition at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown.
This fascinating talk by one of our conservation experts will use photos and film clips to show the painstaking process of conserving this huge map, the challenges associated with preparing such an object for an exhibition and its transatlantic journey to get there.
We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson. Entrance to The National Archives is free and there is no need to book, see nationalarchives.gov.uk/visit for more information.
