Journeys: Reading the World
If you are bored of being stuck at home, why not set sail on a voyage around the globe with our new online exhibition Journeys: Reading the World.
Using the books, manuscripts and archives from the Durham University Special Collections, the immersive exhibition offers top tips for travellers across the centuries and explores debates around the value and danger of foreign travel. There is also a chance to take a unique tour of 18th century Italy, seen through the eyes of lucky travellers able to visit at the time.
Forget lockdown and leave your home, work and troubles behind as you come with us on this journey.
