The story behind The Seventeenth Child: an oral history of a Norwich childhood 1914-34.

Speaker: Carole Blackwell

Carole will tell the fascinating story of Ethel George who grew up as the youngest of seventeen children in a working family in the Pockthorpe area during and immediately after the First World War. She will also talk about the process of recording oral history and how it can be of immense value to broader historical research.

All Historian Group sessions start at 10:15am for tea, & coffee (£1 in the honesty box) and the talk will start at 10:30am. There will be an opportunity for further refreshments and a chat afterwards.
