£10.00

Description

To mark the 150th anniversary of the Victoria Tower of the Palace of Westminster, the Parliamentary Archives has selected 150 treasures from among the 3 million historic records of both Houses of Parliament.

These treasures illustrate the history of Parliament and the Palace of Westminster since the fifteenth century, and include iconic documents such as Charles I's death warrant, the Bill of Rights, the record of the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot, the Stamp Act and the Great Reform Act, as well as less well-known but spectacular items such as a ticket to George IV's coronation banquet, a suffragette banner, a wartime bicycle lamp belonging to the Commons' librarian and a host of other fascinating surprises from the collections.
