Sally Coulthard: A Brief History of the Countryside in 100 Objects

Thu 6 June | 10am

The things left behind provide connections to our rural past. From farming tools to children’s toys and domestic objects, the everyday items of the past reveal fascinating insights into an often-forgotten way of life. Birth, death, celebration, work, crime, play, medicine, beliefs, diet and our relationship with nature can all be read from these remnants of our past.

Sally Coulthard has published over twenty-five books and she also writes for Country Living.
