Highlights from the diverse collections of Winchester College, which provide fascinating insights into the school's long history. Each entry has been written by a member of the school community, allowing each artefact to be viewed from a unique personal angle. New photography allows detailed appreciation of each object. Winchester College was founded in 1382 and is one of England's oldest schools. Over the past six centuries it has accumulated remarkable collections of documents, books and works of art. This publication includes essays on fifty objects from across these collections, each written by a member of the school community. It features documents and artefacts from the early history of the College, and outstanding items from its important collections of Greek antiquities, Chinese ceramics, English silver, and rare books. Among the more unusual and unexpected objects are a ship model made by 18th century prisoners, a scrapbook from the Crimean War, and perhaps the world's longest running scientific experiment. An introductory essay describes how the collections were acquired and sets them in the context of the school's history.
