Fakes, forgeries, and the Society of Antiquaries: Part 2, Richard of Cirencester

This is the second instalment in a series of blogs that tie in with our new exhibition in the Library at Burlington House, examining several forgeries connected to the Society and its collections. In part 2, we take a look at “Richard of Cirencester’s” ‘De Situ Britanniae’ - a forged medieval work that fooled many British scholars for a century.
