The Parker Library was turned into a party space last week when we held a book launch. Dr Mara Kalnins, Life Fellow of the College, and formerly University Reader in Modern English Literature, is the author of The Ancient Amber Routes: Travels from Riga to Byzantium. It is part tourist guide, part travelogue, but mainly a cultural history of the ancient amber routes and a catalogue of amber artefacts.
There is no British distributor, but the book can be purchased from The Baltic Shop for £40, inclusive of postage and packing. Alternatively, please email Dr Kalnins, who will arrange to have a copy sent to you.
