Following the visit to a National Trust property from the period - Uppark in Sussex - the group decided to meet to discuss their thoughts on life in that period. As a new group, we have covered the various monarchs of the century and the major occurrences taking a decade each. Having previously spend almost 5 years enjoying discovering what happened during the 1800s, we have lots of surprises in store as we tackle different topics, each choosing one aspect e.g. clothing or food or transport or communications or entertainment. We each take 3 or more minutes describing and discussing what we discovered, from more than one source if possible as information varies a great deal sometimes.
