An illustrated lecture by Caroline Shenton
This is the gripping and sometimes hilarious story of how heroic curators and eccentric custodians saved Britain’s national heritage during our Darkest Hour. As Hitler’s forces gathered on the other side of the Channel, men and women from London’s museums, galleries and archives forged extraordinary plans to evacuate their collections.
