Discover the Exeter Book

About

Written in about 970AD, the Exeter Book is the oldest of only four surviving books of Anglo-Saxon literature anywhere in the world. Much admired for its beautiful writing and the quality of its verse, this unique book of poetry has been at Exeter Cathedral since Leofric, the first Bishop of Exeter, gave it to his church in around 1072.

Join us in the Cathedral to find out more about this very special book: how it was made, its history and survival, and its poetry. Included in the Cathedral admission charge.
