Tales of death and disease in Olde England

Historian Tim Porter makes a welcome return to Cirencester's Corinium Museum to give a series of three lectures focusing on 14th century England – the time of the dreaded disease Black Death. Come along and explore a century of plague, climate change and social unrest.

The series examines three aspects of these turbulent times, beginning on Thursday 4th October, with 'Pestilence'. The series of lectures continues on Thursday 11th October with 'Parliament', and finishes on Thursday 18th October with the 'Peasant Revolt'.

Each of these talks runs from 2pm - 4pm. Tickets cost is £6.50 per talk, with a 10% discount for annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum. For more details or to book a place, please contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 or email: museums@cotswold.gov.uk

For more information contact Helen Arbon, Outreach Officer at the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611.
