The Curious World of Samuel Pepys & John Evelyn
2:00pm - 3:00pm - Wednesday 6 June
Pepys and Evelyn are two pivotal Restoration figures and the most celebrated English diarists. They were also extraordinary men and close friends with shared interests: diary-keeping, science travel and a love of books. Pepys was earthy and shrewd, Evelyn a genteel aesthete, but both were drawn to intellectual pursuits. Margaret Willes revisits the history of London and England at a time of regicide, revolution, fire and plague.
