1666: Plague, war and hellfire

1666: Plague, war and hellfire
 
  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Great Plague, the second Dutch War, and the devastating Great Fire of London... historian Rebecca Rideal sheds light on these dramatic events and their context, revealing the terror and triumph of 1666, a watershed year in English history.

Based in original archival research drawing on little-known sources, 1666 opens with the fiery destruction of London before taking readers on a thrilling journey through a crucial turning point in English history as seen through the eyes of an extraordinary cast of historical characters. With flair and style, 1666 exposes readers to a city and a country on the cusp of modernity and a series of events that altered the course of history.

This author talk has been organised as part of Richmond Literature Festival.
