Thinking about an online course? Join V&A Academy Course Director Dr Sally Dormer for a free live online lecture to discover golden treasures that form part of the V&A's collections.

Discover why gold captivated 12th-century patrons and craftsmen who valued its rarity, craved its untarnished beauty, and exploited its malleability, employing it in various ways to convey earthly power and the promise of heavenly riches, while getting to know the V&A Academy learning platform. You will receive a link to join the live lecture 24 hours before the event, as well as a link to the recording afterwards, so that you can enjoy watching the lecture on demand.

This taster lecture links to the 12-week online course 'Romanesque to Gothic European Art 1050 to 1250' led by Sally Dormer starting Tuesday 16 April and the in-person study day 'Romanesque Treasures on Friday 21 June'; with the 6-week online course 'Medieval Women Myth and Reality' led by Sally Dormer due to start Thursday 18 April you can delve deeper into the period.

This taster lecture is now fully booked. Should you wish to sign up to this event, please check back on Tuesday 27 February and you will be able to sign up to receive the recording of this taster lecture.
