A funny thing happened on the way to the forum

This beautiful woodcut is taken from our 1539 edition of the plays of Terence, part of a remarkable series of illustrations depicting scenes from medieval theatre productions. The attention to detail is exquisite and will delight everyone from serious theatre historians to the casual book-lover. To find out more, check out our 101 Treasures page, which this week is three-quarters of the way through the series!
