A day of events featuring history talks from two Bristol Radical History Group members. In the Lord Mayor’s Reception Room:

13:30–14:15    Ann Yearsley: Milkmaid & Poet
Sennen Cork leads an introduction to the life and works of Ann Yearsley, the 18th century milkmaid and poet. An early abolitionist, Ann is known for her controversial and contentious working relationship with Hannah More.

14:30–15:15   Nautical Women
Author of Nautical Women: women sailors and the women of sailortowns: A forgotten diaspora c.1693 – 1902, Rosemary Caldicott explores the stories of women whose lives were inextricably linked to the sea. She tells of the women of sailor towns struggling to keep out of the workhouse; and of the courageous cross-dressing women sailors who went to extraordinary lengths to hide their gender.

For full details of all the events see the programme for the whole day.
