    Pauper deaths and burials in Victorian England

    Funeral ceremonies were very important to middle class Victorians, with detailed and often elaborate rituals to mark the passing of cherished family members and those deemed 'important'.

Building on continuing research into the unmarked graves behind Eastville workhouse, Bristol, this talk exposes the contrast in treatment between rich and poor in death.

    'A Great Army of Suffering Ones': The Bristol Guild of the Brave Poor Things in the early 20th century

    The Guild of the Brave Poor Things was a philanthropic organisation, founded in in 1894, which brought together disabled people across Bristol for meetings, games, lectures and eventually apprenticeships and holidays.

  • Eugene Byrne - UWE Regional History Centre and MShed Seminar

    Date: 21 January 2016

    John Latimer and Joseph Leech: the Roundhead and the Cavalier of Victorian Bristol.

    John Latimer, as editor of the Bristol Mercury, and Joseph Leech, editor and owner of the Bristol Times were probably Victorian Bristol's most influential newspapermen. Latimer, a fastidious man with a dry sense of humour was a convinced Liberal, while Leech, a flamboyant and impulsive Irishman was an equally passionate Tory. Both also greatly influenced Bristolians' view of their city's history, the former through his still-read 'Annals' and the latter through his 'Romances', extravagant fictions of Bristol history. Eugene Byrne looks at their lives and careers and their relevance to present-day historians.

    The Matthew of Bristol: life and afterlife

    The ship on which John Cabot sailed on his epic voyage of discovery to North America in 1497 has played a key part in the city's historic identity for five hundred years. This talk will discuss the work of The Cabot Project, led by Evan Jones, which has been investigating Bristol's early voyages since 2009. The lecture will concentrate on the new information that has been revealed about the historic ship, before going on to consider when, how and why she was transformed from a physical vessel built to serve the trading needs of a busy port, into an emblem of Bristol's discovery and enterprise.
