To mark last year's 850th anniversary of his brutal murder, the exhibition explores Becket's remarkable life, death and legacy. It presents his journey from a merchant's son to Archbishop of Canterbury, and the attempts to obliterate his cult under the Tudor dynasty.
Introduced and chaired by the Director of the British Museum, Hartwig Fischer, the exhibition curators, Lloyd de Beer and Naomi Speakman, discuss the themes, context and highlight objects of this remarkable show.
This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
