An Evening With Three Elizabethan Gentlemen

Visit the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Thursday, June 28th and spend the evening in company with John Coxwell, Humphrey Bridges and Philip Marner, three distinguished, late Elizabethan, residents of the town.

Join Dr John Paddock as he explores the evidence for the lives, careers and bequests of these Tudor businessmen, and the part they played in the development of Cirencester. Dr Paddock will seek to place these very different figures into both the local social context and the wider context of Elizabethan England.

Dr Paddock completed his PhD. in Roman Military studies at the Institute of Archaeology London and is a specialist in Romano-British and Medieval Archaeology. He has worked for The Royal Armouries and Lincoln Museum and in 1998 became curator of the Corinium Museum.

This lecture, which is one of a series of evening lectures taking place at the Museum, runs from 7pm - 9pm and tickets cost 5 per person. Annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum receive a 10% discount.

Booking is essential. Please contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 or email to book a place or to find out more about other lectures or events at the Museum.
