Epsom & Ewell

History

HISTORY 1
(Medieval)
We cover the Medieval Period starting with Edward the Confessor, finishing in 1485.
Our usual format is for one or more members of the group to give a talk on the chosen subject, with everyone else chipping in, finishing with a discussion over tea and biscuits.
We have been working through the reigns of individual monarchs, as well as looking at the biographies of some of the big names, along with more general topics such as trade, chivalry, the crusades, monasteries, etc.
We normally meet at 2:00pm on the third Monday of the month.

HISTORY 2
The group meets on the last Friday of the month.
It started some 18 years ago and has been through the History of England, the History of London and then attempted Europe.
They went through Europe country by country before going back to England.

They are currently studying the Plantagenets - having started with the Dark Ages - which they found fascinating - so many of today's institutions started at this time.
This followed with the Normans and the Domesday Book etc.

They not only learn - but have a good time along the way with outings and lunches!

HISTORY 4
This is a relatively new group meeting in Central Epsom in the afternoon of the second Friday in each month

Initial subjects included discussions on "Women and Children in Wartime", "The Irish Potato Famine", "Afghanistan" and "Education".
It became obvious the interest was in Social History and Andrew Marr's book "The Making of Modern Britain" covered many topics in this field in the years between 1900-1945.
Each member bought a copy to do their "homework"!

This is an action packed period in history covering the Boer War, two World Wars, twelve Prime Ministers, press barons, an abdication, suffragettes, entertainment in the music halls and cinema, great writers, composers and inventors.
A venture into eugenics is little known and maybe best forgotten.

Marr's book was such a success that the Group have decided to continue with his follow on "A History of Modern Britain"
