|To promote the study of agricultural history, and the history of the rural economy and society, the BAHS publishes the Agricultural History Review and Rural History Today. The Society holds conferences twice a year: a day meeting in London in early December, and a residential conference at different locations in Britain in Spring. These are opportunities for professional and non-professional historians to meet, mix and exchange views in a friendly and sociable atmosphere.|
Further details can be obtained by emailing us. Please tell us by email to this address (email@example.com) if you intend to come.
This memorial meeting is sponsored by many of the societies and institutions with which Joan was associated over a long life: the British Agricultural History Society, British Association for Local History, Economic History Society, Kent Archaeological Society, The Medieval Settlement Research Group, St Hilda’s College Oxford, The History Faculty of the University of Oxford, and Past and Present.
