Eighteenth-century Cornwall & the world of Poldark

with Hannah Greig
20:30 - 21:30
£15 non-subscriber, £12 subscriber

This Poldark-inspired talk explores the history of 18th century Cornwall. Taking us down mines that attracted speculations more daring than the American gold rush and around coastlines exploited by infamous smugglers, Hannah finds men, women and families whose lives were just as dramatic as those so vividly drawn in Winston Graham’s novels.
