Event description

Description

What part did animals play in the development of Islington as the open fields gave way to the inner city? What was it like when when cattle, pigs and geese were driven through the streets to the live meat market at Smithfield and just how much dung did horse-drawn carriages dump on London streets? From performing animals to beasts of burden, working animals played an important part in the life of our ancestors. Discover how a fancy to milk a cow led to the founding of a school, about the local lad responsible for a world famous dog show and the people who promoted animal welfare. Join Sue to find out what it was really like for animals and humans to live so closely together.
