From December 2019 we will not be holding any more Sunday afternoon talks or Tuesday evening talks.

This is due to the poor turnouts we have been having (apart from Pete Lowdens talk on Spanish Flu!)

The Wednesday morning talks will continue on the second Wednesday of the month, topics are below.


Wednesday 12th February 10am

Wives, Widows, Workers and Witches.

with Carol Osgerby

When we are told by historians that in the past women mostly stayed home, we don’t tend to expect to find women outside the domestic sphere.

But I looked for women in the historical records, and found women criminals,heads of religious houses, major landowners, farmers, and in many occupations.

You just have to look for them.
