2,000 years of love letters


A new collection of love letters, drawn from the archives of the British Library, has been published in time for Valentine's Day.

The letters of Wallis Simpson to King Edward VIII are included and her biographer, Ann Sebba, outlines why love letters are valuable historical artefacts that tell us a lot about the people who both wrote and received them.
