Sunday, July 17th with Kim Dewdney
With the pandemic and lockdown fresh in our memory it’s time to look back over the ages and see how London has dealt with disease in the past. We’ll see the evidence of mass burials, hear of the beginnings of epidemiology and discover some disgusting and innovative “cures” for the plague. From Great Stinks to floral nosegays we’ll uncover stories of how London coped, survived and ultimately adapted to anything that the most vicious bugs could throw at it. And to end we come right up to date as we discover where the City’s COVID memorial will be placed.
