"Feisty Ladies: Women Travellers from Victorian Britain" Roger Mitchell Tuesday 05 February 2019

In the morning we look at the Victorian Revolution in transport and travel and how this encouraged women travellers from Queen Victoria in the Scottish Highlands to Mary Kingsley in West Africa.

In the afternoon we concentrate on Marianne North and her paintings and Isabella Bird and her writings about Hawaii and the American West.
