200 years after her death, Jane Austen in 41 Objects is a celebration of Jane Austen’s life. Jane was only 41 years old when she died in 1817, and Jane Austen in 41 Objects tells the story of her life and legacy with reference to 41 different objects in the Jane Austen’s House Museum collection.

Jane Austen in 41 Objects takes the form of an evolving exhibition alongside a series of online posts by guest writers published weekly throughout this bicentenary year. Each object and accompanying text explores a different aspect of Jane Austen’s life and work.

The story begins on Friday 10 March and finishes on Friday 15 December, one day before Jane Austen’s birthday. Follow the story online at: www.jane-austens-house-museum.org.uk/41-objects

Please note: due to the Museum's limited display space and loans to other museums, the exhibition of the 41 Objects is staggered throughout 2017, and not all objects will be on display at all times.
