The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society – Simon Wenham : Poverty, Pestilence and Public Health
Michael Fulford : Silchester Revealed : the Iron Age and Roman Town in light of recent research.
Britain may have been the ‘workshop of the world’ in the Victorian period, but the sceptre of poverty and pestilence loomed large over the lives of many of its citizens. A large proportion of people were not only close to the bread line, but repeated epidemics decimated whole swathes of the population. This talk explores the wealth and health of the British during the Victorian period and the State’s struggle to improve conditions
