Description: William Bankes was a 19th century collector of ancient Egyptian artefacts and Spanish paintings intended for his ancestral home, Kingston Lacy. He was forced into exile in Italy to escape prosecution, yet continued to collect for a house he no long lived in nor owned. The house has been restored by the National Trust – can William himself be restored in this talk? £10 per person. Please let us know you saw us on What's On in Dorset!
