The Women’s Land Army in Northamptonshire during the First World War
Speaker: Helen Frost
Friday 10 August 11.30am-12.30pm
The years 1914-1918 provided opportunities to women of all classes in all regions of Britain that were simply unthinkable before The Great War. Hear about the incredible contribution made by this too often overlooked army of women who were recruited from urban areas such as Northampton to work on the land during the First World War.

Health and medicine in Northampton during the First World War
Speaker: Dr Caroline Nielsen
(Lecturer in History and Heritage at the University of Northampton)
Friday 17 August 11.30am-12.30pm

What was it like to be ill during the First World War? How did the war affect people’s access to medical care? This talk will look at people’s experience of health and healthcare in Northampton during the war, focusing on who, and where, they went for advice and assistance.

The girl who made my boots
Speaker: Helen Norman
Friday 24 August 11.30am-12.30pm
How did the Northamptonshire boot and shoe industry cope with the demands of the War Office after the men were sent to fight? Drawing on contemporary accounts and artefacts, Helen Norman will shed light on the unsung ‘army’ of woman who helped to keep the Allied Forces shod during WW1.
