Horses and the aristocratic lifestyle in early modern England
The Victoria County History (VCH) Shropshire has invited historian, Professor Peter Edwards, to give its third annual lecture. Professor Edwards will show how the horse revolutionised the way rural society worked, played and operated in the period between c.1500 and c.1750.
Professor Edwards’ lecture will demonstrate that the possession of a horse empowered individuals in an unimaginable way – lives changed forever.
When: Saturday 27 October 2018
Where: Central, Shrewsbury Baptist Church, 4 Claremont Street, Shrewsbury, SY1 1QG
Cost: A donation of £5 for this event would be gratefully received to cover the cost of refreshments and advance the work of VCH in the county.
