Lecture meeting on 10th February 2020

Uncovering past lives from dusty documents

Talk by: Gavin Hooson

In this talk, Gavin will show how the most unpromising looking documents will still have information about the lives of ordinary people who have lived in Mid Wales before us. He will be looking at court records, school records and even maps.

This talk replaced that originally planned by Dr Marin Bates on E.M.Forster

A report of the meeting by Clive Barrett is available.
