Exhibition: People and the Land

Finding the extraordinary within the ordinary, People and the Land fuses the day-to-day life of rural communities with national narratives, unearthing never-before-seen archival material.

From eighteenth-century rare books and maps to ephemera of the First World War, the exhibition charts the immutable relationship of people with the land. The unsung heroes of agriculture are explored through the University archive's extensive collections on mills and watermills, with letters, photographs and ledgers providing unique snapshots into rural life.

Rediscover some of the archive's best-kept secrets, where we invite you to mill around (pun intended) an exhibition devoted to you and the enduring nature of the land.

Curated by Special Collections and Archives volunteers Helen Whittle and Helena Green
