Thursday 8th September: 1000-1100
In this talk, Dave Evans, Archaeology Manager at Hull City Council, examines the evidence for different lifestyles and wealth distribution in Hull as it developed from the third largest port on the east coast in 1300 to the second largest in England by 1700, second only to London; it also looks at the archaeological and historical evidence for where the rich and the poor actually lived, and about the quality of life within different parts of the town.
