What happened where in seventeenth century London – and why is that important? Panellists explore the many dimensions of place, space and person and analyse many kinds of texts from plays and letters to songs and parish records. These raise issues about the relationships between art and commerce, crime and justice, memory and reputation. Please do join us and share your thoughts.
