Women of Excellent Understanding: The Wives and Daughters of the Lunar Society
The Friends of Shropshire Archives are delighted to welcome back Dr Kate Croft to deliver their annual lecture ‘Women of Excellent Understanding: The Wives and Daughters of the Lunar Society’.
The men of the eighteenth-century Lunar Society are well known, but what about the Lunar women? Who were they and how important were they in the histories of their husbands and fathers? This talk will look at some of the Lunar wives and daughters to consider the role the Lunar women played in their husbands’ businesses as well as their scientific investigations and philosophical thought.
When: Saturday 16 November 2019 at 10.30am
Where: Shropshire Archives
Cost: £5 please book in advance.
