Students will have a guided tour of the Cathedral, learning about its history as an ancient site of pilgrimage and the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops led by the Winchester Cathedral Education Department.  One of these workshops will focus on the beauty and history of the amazing 12th century Winchester Bible, which was commissioned in 1160 by Henry of Blois, grandson to William the Conqueror.  There will also be a workshop on calligraphy, enabling students to practise the skills of calligraphy with expert teachers and a further session involving the investigation of ancient monuments and tombs and exploring the art of brass rubbings.    

This is an excellent opportunity for students to view and learn about this exceptionally interesting historical text which provides unique insights into medieval art, religion and Christian worship.
