Thu. 15 November 2018 at 2:15 pm
A talk by David Stone “Exploring East Dartmoor in the Age of the Black Death”.
David Stone is a economic and social historian and has taught medieval and early modern history at the universities of Cambridge and Exeter. He has published two books, on medieval agriculture and manorial records, and articles or chapters on topics such as diet, drought, labour productivity, the Black Death, Chaucer’s reeve, and monastic mortality.
He has always sought to encourage and assist local communities to explore their past, not just using documents but through archaeology and landscape, too. Most recently, he has been involved in a Heritage Lottery-funded community project about medieval Dartmoor.
