Event description

Description

English country house owners often displayed beautiful and ornamental clocks among their many possessions. But what do these tell us about the history of timekeeping? In this paper Rachel Rich (Leeds Beckett University) will think about clocks as objects, but also at how they can be understood in a wider context of changing attitudes towards time and time management inside the home.

The talk is free with normal admission to the House which is valid all day. Adults £6, Leeds card £4.80
