Samurai History and Legend
This event is being hosted as part of Cambridge University Libraries' exhibition, Samurai: History and Legend. Samurai are a well-known image of Japan, but they are as much legend as history. Our exhibition explores the literary image of the samurai and the changing nature of Japanese warrior history and culture from the 12th to the 19th centuries.
Our exhibition is on now and is free and open to all.

Booking/Registration is: REQUIRED
