How Norwich Fought against the Plague

By Frank Meeres

Wednesday 9 December 2020

The year 2020 is not the first time Norwich has come under threat from a pandemic.  Outbreaks of plague in Tudor and Stuart times were just as devastating for the city – and led to many more deaths.  Have we learnt from the past? – this talk looks at how the city authorities tried to fight against the plague – and compares their actions with those of people at the present time.
