“…we should be clem’d and starved…”: Welsh pauper letters

January 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

In this talk, Professor Stephen King (University of Leicester) will delve into the rich primary source material of pauper letters held at The National Archives.

Stephen will demonstrate how people of Wales in the 19th century adjusted to the new Poor Law system, and will bring out some of the very personal experiences of poverty through the accounts of the people who experienced it.
