January's Archive of the Month highlights some of the wax seals held in the Archive Centre. These miniature works of art date from King Stephen (c. 1097-1154) to Elizabeth I (1533-1603). The collection includes a rare seal of Empress Matilda (1141) and the seal of the College's founder, Henry VI. See the Archive of the month page.

The documents from December's Archive of the month are now in an exhibition at the Archive Centre. 'POWs in Pantomime' looks at the plays British POWs staged during World War Two. See the Exhibitions page.
