The talk will take place on Wednesday April 25 at Mendi’s restaurant in Wisbech starting at 7.30pm and will finish the groups series of winter talks.
The book reveals a ‘traditional landscape managed by relatively prosperous communities who lived in stable societies into which newcomers from north-west Europe were absorbed’.
