Soar Valley

History Study Group

As the title implies we are a study group rather than an outings group and are working on the broad sweep of history from prehistoric times up to and including the Industrial Revolution in the UK.

Members each take a subject that appeals to them, research it and take it in turns to make a presentation to the rest of the group. Currently members are covering Metals & Metal Working, Agriculture and Transport (Road, River/Canal & eventually Rail.) We are finding it a very enjoyable exercise and it is particularly satisfying the way one subject area illuminates another.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday morning of each month and we would welcome one or two additional members who may be interested in exploring any area that would expand or complement the existing topics.
