The Word Burned
Take a peek at 'The Word Burned' down in the cellar at Blickling Estate - an area not usually open to visitors. When ISIS militants took control of Mosul, Iraq in 2014, they burned down its university library destroying thousands of books and manuscripts dating back to the Ottoman era. Following the liberation of the city in 2017, former students and academics saved around 2,000 volumes from the ashes of the library. Their work to restore and rebuild the library continues.
