This exhibition brings together spectacular pieces of medieval art to explore the development of the Romanesque style in the 12th century. It includes objects from across medieval Europe, and examines the rich complex influences that created an artistic revolution in this period. The exhibition focusses particularly on Winchester, which under Bishop Henry of Blois became a great centre of artistic production.
