Dockyard Talks…

10 May 2017 - 10 May 2017

Rebecca Rideal 

Introduction to the Dutch Raid and surrounding events, author

The raid itself, the course of the 2nd Anglo-Dutch War and the wider themes of Anglo-Dutch relations in the 1660s; my talks are always rooted in human stories.

Book Blurb: ‘Shedding light on these dramatic events, historian Rebecca Rideal reveals an unprecedented period of terror and triumph. Based on original archival research and drawing on little-known sources, 1666: Plague, War and Hellfire takes readers on a thrilling journey through a crucial turning point in English history, as seen through the eyes of an extraordinary cast of historical characters.’
