How Norwich Fought against the Plague
by Frank Meeres
The year 2020 is not the first time Norwich has come under threat from a pandemic. Outbreaks of plague in Tudor and Stuart times were just as devastating for the city – and led to many more deaths. Have we learnt from the past? – this talk looks at how the city authorities tried to fight against the plague – and compares their actions with those of people at the present time.
20 min talk plus live Q and A with speaker- Frank Meeres
