September meeting

Thu Sep 27th Jean Townsend “The Last Laugh-Graveyard Epitaphs”

Jean is a social historian with a particular interest in the late medieval and early Tudor period. She studied archaeology and discovered her first epitaph whilst clearing a London churchyard. This led Jean to study social attitudes to burial in the past and she collected many unusual and amusing epitaphs. Jean has produced a fascinating talk on this subject - the rest, as they say, is history!(This presentation was originally to have been given at our June meeting)
