Sep 2020 - Oct 2021 In this exhibition, we have taken 20 objects from our collection of over 40,000, using the research and commentary of expert historians to look at them from a new perspective – through the lens of the history of the British Empire. Why not give Walton Library a visit, and discover the forgotten connections between the vast Empire and our historic thoughts, homes and local landscapes?
