Dr Todd Gray is currently broadcasting 15 minute pieces on aspects of Devon history every weekday on BBC Radio Devon at 1.10pm. These will run through June, and possibly July, and while all of our societies have stopped meeting for lectures these are meant to help alleviate the sense of isolation some of us are feeling.
The Devon & Cornwall Record Society is sponsoring a series of daily blogs by our leading heritage specialists (historians, archivists, archaeologists, librarians, writers and curators) in Devon and Cornwall on how life in quarantine has made them reevaluate history. These are running through June and July and can be found on the society’s Facebook page.
The society exists to publish original documentary material and this year’s volume is a facsimile reproduction of Devon’s only woollen cloth collection – from the 1760s. It comes free with this year’s membership (at £16.50) or on publication later this year (at £30). Details can be found on our website.
