Revisiting Worcestershire's Past - CONFERENCE


This exciting conference organised by Worcestershire Historical Society and the University of Worcester is dedicated to the re-interpretation of Worcestershire’s history. It seeks to involve the broad community of those who are interested in the county’s past. The emphasis throughout will be on how the concerns of, and the methods deployed by, historians have changed over the years and upon sources and our approaches to them.

Sixteen experts will deliver papers on a wide range of topics including vernacular architecture, landscape history, the liturgy at Worcester Cathedral, football in the county, Worcestershire peasants in the middle-ages, the origins of the Worcestershire gentry, Worcestershire parliamentarians in the seventeenth-century, printing and Worcestershire elections in the eighteenth-century, the history of Worcestershire ceramics, money in Worcestershire history, and Worcester in the 1950s.

There will also be an exhibition of local sources provided by the Worcestershire County Council Libraries, Archive & Archaeology Service.
