|Lecturer:||Professor Ronald Hutton|

|Under 18s:||£14.00 What's included?|
One of the main experiences which distinguishes the Tudor and Stuart period from the modern age is that its people suffered regularly from famine and devastating epidemic disease. This talk looks at the way in which historians can study these killers and their effects, and how they were perceived and experienced at the time. It also tackles directly the question of when and how they were finally brought to an end.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently.
