Ancient words

ANNA Brereton follows William Shakespeare in reading from a 400-year-old edition of a rare book going on display at an exhibition.

Chronicles of Scotland and England, by Raphael Holinshed, reputedly inspired many of the playwright's historical plays, including Macbeth. It is to feature in a new exhibition of 50 works at the University of Edinburgh's Main Library.

The free event runs from tomorrow until June 14.
