Lost for 700 years – An Epic Story Speaks Out

In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence.
It was discovered in Wollaton Manor, Nottinghamshire, in a box marked Old Papers – No Value (buried under a few letters from King Henry VIII.)
A legend had been patiently waiting, for seven hundred years.

But it was 1911. Suffrage protests were at their explosive height. And this story suggests that England’s wellbeing depends on a quest for gender equality. So the manuscript was kept silent.

But the story was made to be told.
Now is the time to tell it.
