A display of artefacts and documents connecting Lincolnshire with the Islamic world

ارتباط لينكولنشاير بالعالم الإسلامي

This display is intended to highlight Lincolnshire's links with the Islamic world using documents and artefacts that are not always on display. The earliest artefact is a coin from what is now Afghanistan that came to Lincolnshire over a thousand years ago. In the nineteenth century Middle Eastern literature was influential on Lincolnshire writers like Tennyson. Today Lincoln has a vibrant Islamic community that has recently opened the doors on the city's first bespoke Mosque.

Exhibited in our Orientation Hall and Main gallery

On display from 11th May
