    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.

    The Elusive Lady Apsley

    Many people are unaware that Bristol's first woman M.P. was Lady Apsley who won Bristol Central in 1943 for the Conservatives after her husband, who had previously held the seat, had been killed in an air crash. Given the brevity of her parliamentary career (she lost her seat In 1945) and the circumstances which led to her election, it is tempting to dismiss her as a political lightweight of little significance.
