Norwich, one of England’s oldest cities, boasts a range of women’s history. The Queen of Iceni pub, Opie Road, Newgate Street, and Julien’s Cell all bear evidence to the city’s connection to Boudicca, Amelia Opie, Elisabeth Fry and Julian of Norwich. From ancient to modern times, there is not a period in history where remarkable women haven’t walked the cobbled streets of Norwich.
This online talk will illuminate Norwich’s past as it looks at individual women and events that took place within the old city.
