After retirement in early 2011, Joan and Gary Hunt treated themselves to 13 months living in Warwickshire, where Joan applied to undertake an Advanced Diploma in Local History through Oxford University.
This talk will present and discuss the two modules of the one-year study, accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation showing the various Oxfordshire villages which were case studies used to interpret the medieval and early modern sources under investigation.
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
