The Curious World of Samuel Pepys & John Evelyn

2:00pm - 3:00pm - Wednesday 6 June

Derby Museum and Art Gallery, DE1 1BS

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.
