12 May Stevenage: 800 years a town!

The earliest charter we know of was granted to Stevenage in 1223. Take a trip through the town’s 800 year-old story with local historian Hugh Madgin.

9 June New town shopping

Sadly Dr Elain Harwood from Historic England died recently, she'll be much missed as she was a passionate enthusiast for all things new town, so this talk will be a tribute to her - we'll share what we have learned about the town centre as part of our Historic England funded Everyday Histories project exploring the town centre's journey from ideas on paper drawn up as early as 1950 (when no houses had been built yet!) to a town centre (and town) ready to be visited by the Queen in April 1959 for its official opening. 

14 July A Hertfordshire landscape full of secrets

The Best Prehistoric Landscape outside Wessex: Therfield Heath is well known among golfers, kite flyers and dog walkers. It is covered in mounds - some ancient, some much less so - and has attracted the attention of antiquaries and archaeologists for almost two centuries. We will look at the development of the heath’s complex landscape.
