The human cost of civil war – the Buckinghamshire experience – Saturday 17 April, opening on Zoom at 2.15pm

This is the Bucks Archaeological Society’s April lecture.

Professor Andrew Hopper will show how wounded soldiers, war widows and other bereaved family members from the English Civil War petitioned for financial relief, with some affected for decades.
He is the principal investigator for the Civil War Petitions Project at Leicester University. The Bucks petitions have recently been published on the project’s website.
