We hold two annual conferences, Spring and Winter and we also promote and participate in other events both in Britain and abroad. We also support otherwise unfunded events through our Conferences and Initiatives Fund.

Spring Conference 2018

Daffodils in Walled Garden at Cannington

The Society’s Spring Conference 2018 will be held at the Cannington Campus of Bridgwater and Taunton College just outside Bridgwater, 26 to 28 March 2018. Cannington has a lovely walled garden in the grounds of a medieval priory.

The varied programme includes papers on Water Management in Britain; the Knight Family and the Reclamation of Exmoor Forest; the Economics of Grain Storage in England; Women’s Work in Early Modern England; and the Green Revolution.

If you are a new researcher and would like to present a 20-minute paper in the new researchers’ session, please send your abstract to Prof. Henry French,, by 5 March 2018. Bursaries are available to enable postgraduates to attend (same email address and deadline).
There will also be an excursion on the afternoon of Tuesday 27 March to the Somerset Museum of Rural Life in Glastonbury.
