Archives are a box of delights and there’s always something new to discover.  Here in Gloucestershire we’ve had lots of pioneers who’ve pushed back frontiers in all aspects of life, including Budding, Bradley, Jenner, Paul, Pitman, Tyndale, Raikes, Pedersen and for some reason a lot of people with ‘W’ surnames, such as Whittington, Wilson, Whittle and Wheatstone.  This presentation is a rather eclectic mix that will look advances in medicine, engineering, music, travel, social reform and aviation that in various ways originated in the county and feature things ranging from diving bells to balloons and adjustable spanners to toilets!

 

This monthly series of leisurely lunchtime learning sessions are great for those who are new to learning about the past and for those passionate about history, keen to expand their knowledge on a given subject in a focused session.

Led by experts at Gloucestershire Archives they are easy to digest, laced with humour and full of headline facts and context information ready to unlock an the secrets of a time gone by.
