The Impact of Famine and Plague in the 14c West Country (Sherborne Historical Society talk)

07 March 2019

Digby Hall, Hound Street, Sherborne

Dr Christopher Thornton examines how the 'Great Famine' (c.1315) and the 'Black Death' (c.1348) contributed to a fundamental historical turning point. Using evidence from the Vale of Taunton Deane, he asks how the impact on population levels of these two disasters can be measured.

Members and students free; visitors £5.
