Exhibition: Banners of the North, Bedes World

Bede’s World, Jarrow

Bede’s World is hosting Banners of the North – an array of medieval treasures, on loan from the British Museum – which highlight how the area changed following the invasion of William the Conqueror.

Among them are a 15th century gold signet ring, believed to have belonged to the Percy family during the Wars of the Roses, a gold pendant depicting St George slaying the dragon and the magical St George Amulet ring.
