Description

Poverty, the law, and popular rights: Victorian paupers making their own history


TALK

What did the poor, unemployed, sick and elderly think about the welfare they were offered in Victorian Britain?

Speakers Paul Carter and Chief Executive and Keeper of The National Archives Jeff James will discuss how Victorian paupers interacted with the poor law authorities, what they understood of their rights, and how they viewed their position in society.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson
