A talk by Stuart Hamond.                                      Date: Thu. 9 Jan, 2014 19:30

The social and political changes wrought by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I had a dramatic effect on the city of Bristol,

and the lives of its people. In this talk, Stuart Hammond will focus on how the 'big ticket' episodes of the period affected the geography, politics and economy of our city. How did such diverse events as the English Reformation and the Spanish Armada affect the daily lives of 16th-century Bristolians? And how much of that impact has left its mark on the urban geography and society of Bristol to the present day?
Stuart Hammond is a purchasing and supply chain consultant, currently engaged in obtaining large-scale funding for a variety of green and zero carbon energy systems. He also writes historical thrillers. The first, 'Minion', is set during Elizabeth I's visit to Bristol in 1574. Its sequel, 'Serpentine', is in preparation.
The event begins at 7.30pm in the Upper Meeting Room at Friends Meeting House, Hampton Road, BS6 6JE.
