Lunar Lecture – Food & the Georgian Pauper

Lunar Lecture – Food and the Georgian Pauper: Evidence from Sandford Street Workhouse Garden, c. 1770-1834 Oliver Twist asking for more gruel has cast a long shadow over the diets of workhouse inmates. New research on poverty and the poor law in Staffordshire and on St Mary’s workhouse which stood in Sandford Street, Lichfield, shows that under the old poor law food and drink provision was more varied and generous than published workhouse dietaries suggest. This lecture will be held on zoom Dr Peter Collinge AHRC Researcher, Small Bills and Petty Finance: Co-creating the history of the Old Poor Law
