Detective fun at The John Rylands Library
Did you know that books haven’t always been made from paper? Hundreds of years ago, people used to write all of their notes and books on animal skin; what we now call parchment.
Become a detective and investigate the past, by unlocking the secret codes hidden in parchment fragments. Discover which animals were used and where they might have come from, and then create your own DNA bracelet by coding your name!
No need to book, just drop in.
