A talk by Jane Lewis of Surrey History Centre
The talk is based on a study of a rural village on the Surrey/Hampshire border which reveals the often hidden lives of agricultural workers in the latter half of the 19th century. The talk focuses on the changes to agricultural life in general during this period, and also how these changes affected individuals and small communities. It also explores some of the many sources that can be used to discover more about agricultural labourers up to the outbreak of the First World War.
