In 2005, archaeologist Andy Linklater discovered one of the most unusual objects ever found in Canterbury; a complex scientific instrument, a ‘Quadrans Novus’. Dating back to the 1300s, these are very rare; this is only the seventh known in the world. What was it used for? Who used it? How important is it? Come and hear about its discovery and learn the story of this medieval treasure.
